Alabama NCAA college basketball player Collin Sexton talks with the media about heading to the NBA during a press conference in Tuscaloosa Ala. Friday

Alabama point guard Collin Sexton announced on Friday that he will enter the 2018 NBA Draft and intends to sign with an agent.

"Last but not least, I am officially declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft", he said during the press release. Former Crimson Tide standout Gerald Wallace made the jump after his rookie season in 2001 and was drafted with the 24 overall pick in the first round.

"Growing up, you want to make it to the NBA", Sexton said. He averaged 19.2 points per game as a freshman and was Alabama's first All-American since Richard Hendrix (2008). "The reason why we're going to be better next year is because he helped catapult us into the tournament, which have given the players that are returning some real NCAA experience".

Despite just one season at Alabama, coach Avery Johnson touted Sexton's impact on its long-term future. "This is the next phase of his life".
