Eniel Polynice is scheduled to graduate next month and has thus decided not to return for his final season at Ole Miss, the school announced Wednesday.
“I have enjoyed my experience as a student-athlete during my four years at Ole Miss,” said Polynice, who redshirted with an injury in the 2008-09 season. “I will be the first person in my family to graduate from college in a few weeks, and now I’m ready to pursue my dream of playing professional basketball.”
Polynice averaged 8.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game this season. He's the second Rebel to declare for the NBA Draft (the first was Terrico White), and could be one of three if Chris Warren also declares before Sunday's deadline. A source told CBSSports.com that Warren is still gathering information and undecided.

Ole Miss is still waiting on Chris Warren's MRI results. But a source close to the program told CBSSports.com that the team doctor has examined the knee and "has no doubt" the injury is a torn ACL.
That means that barring a miracle -- and it would be naive to expect one at this point -- the Rebels will play the remainder of the season without their sophomore guard who is averaging 19.6 points per game. Warren will join Eniel Polynice and Trevor Gaskins on the sideline and leave Andy Kennedy to navigate the SEC down three of his top four guards.
Warren was injured in Thursday's loss to Louisville.
Ole Miss returns to the court Monday against Florida A&M.

Andy Kennedy's "difficult 24 hours" concluded with Chris Warren limping, and though it's still too early to know for sure a source close to the Ole Miss program told CBSSports.com that the Rebels expect a Friday morning MRI will show that Warren tore his ACL in Thursday's loss to Louisville and will be sidelined for the rest of the season.
If so, OIe Miss will now be without three of its top four guards considering Trevor Gaskins and Eniel Polynice are already out with season-ending injuries. That would leave David Huertas as the only available Rebel who averaged at least six points per game last season.
Ole Miss (7-4) returns to the court Monday against Florida A&M.
