Oregon Ducks freshman forward Troy Brown announced on Tuesday that he would be declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft.
Brown made the announcement via Twitter and wrote that his “time at Oregon has come to an end.” Brown seems to be indicating that he will hire an agent and will not be eligible to return to Eugene.

Brown, a 5-star recruit from Centennial High School in Las Vegas, was ranked as the No. 13 recruit in the country.
In his one year in Eugene, Brown averaged 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 35 games. Brown shot 44 percent from the floor and 29 percent from deep. Brown is the first ever Oregon player to be “one-and-done.”
The Ducks failed to make the NCAA Tournament and were knocked out of the NIT Tournament in the second round by Marquette.
