TROY, AL (WSFA) -

The Troy Trojans could potentially be losing one of its most talented players and leaders on the basketball court. Mens Basketball forward Jordon Varnado announced that he is entering his name into the upcoming NBA Draft.

Varnado made his announcement on Twitter Friday.

Varnado not hiring an agent means he can withdraw his name and return to Troy, as long as he does it by June 11. He'll be able to go through workouts and receive feedback from NBA scouts. The junior is coming off a season in which he posted a stat line of 18 ppg and 7 rpg, leading the team in scoring.

While wearing No. 23 in Cardinal and White, Varnado was named to the All-Sun Belt First Team in his sophomore season, and started in 30 of 31 games his freshman season.

NBA blood runs in the Varnado family. Jordon's older brother Jarvis Varnado enjoyed some time in the NBA, playing with four teams and as recent as the 2013-2014 season.
