Arizona's Grant Jerrett heading to the NBA

By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Arizona freshman forward Grant Jerrett, who averaged just 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game last season, is heading to the NBA, sources told

The school released a statement late Wednesday night.

The 6-foot-10 Jerrett is extremely skilled, but struggled to adjust to the college game. Most of his production came from beyond the 3-point arc. In fact, 32 of his 63 field goals came from deep.

This is a baffling decision because multiple NBA executives told that Jerrett is likely a second-rounder and could go undrafted. Sources also indicated Jerrett is likely to sign with Brian Dyke of Shibumi Sports.

Arizona can withstand the loss of Jerrett, especially with highly-touted freshman Aaron Gordon entering the program. The Wildcats also have sophomores Kaleb Tarczewski and Brandon Ashley back on the front line.

Sean Miller also adds Duquesne transfer T.J. McConnell, who will assume starting point guard duties.
