Arizona State Sun Devils freshman guard Luguentz Dort will enter the 2019 NBA Draft, he announced via Twitter on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pounder from Montreal is projected by some experts to be a first-round pick. Dort made the announcement with a video on his Twitter page.

Dort averaged a team-high 16.1 points at ASU in the 2018-19 season and was selected as the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year. He helped guide the Sun Devils to a second-place Pac-12 finish and ASU's second consecutive NCAA Tournament bid.

ASU coach Bobby Hurley wished Dort the best via Twitter on Wednesday.
