After just one quick season in Austin, Texas center Mo Bamba has declared for the NBA Draft, announced Tuesday afternoon.

In a short statement, Bamba called his one season with the Longhorns "incredibly rewarding".

Bamba was a fantastic rim protector for the Longhorns and projects to be a top five pick at the summer showcase.

This decision comes as no surprise, as Bamba has not shied away from his lofty goals of being selected in the upper echelon of the 2018 NBA Draft.

The freshman forward said Tuesday he will leave Texas for the National Basketball Association after one season of dominant rebounding and record-setting shot blocking. I think of this as career-hunting. In 30 games, Bamba led the Big 12 Conference in double-doubles (15), rebounding (10.5 rpg) and blocked shots (111, 3.70 bpg). He earned postseason awards such as Second-Team All-Big 12, Big 12 All-Defensive Team and Big 12 Newcomer.
