Senior guard Austin Reaves will forgo his extra year of eligibility provided by COVID-19 and enter the 2021 NBA Draft, according to ESPN's Jonathan Givony.

Reaves, an All-Big 12 First Team selection this season, averaged over 18 points, five rebounds and four assists per game. Reaves is the 40th ranked NBA Draft prospect according to ESPN.

The 6-foot-5 guard ended his career with 27 points on 11-of-17 shooting against No. 1 seeded Gonzaga on March 22. Reaves skyrocketed into draft consideration after his performance against the national championship favorite.

"My family and I believe this is best decision for my future and I'm super excited for the next part of my journey," Reaves said in the ESPN report.
