St. John's freshman forward Moe Harkless says he intends to apply for early entry to the NBA Draft.
The 6-foot-8 Harkless, the Big East Rookie of the Year, made the announcement Monday at a news conference at Madison Square Garden.
He is part of the five-freshmen class that started 12 games for the Red Storm (13-19) this season. He averaged 15.5 points and 8.6 rebounds, which puts him sixth and second, respectively, among freshmen nationally.
Harkless, who has been projected as a possible first-round draft pick, says he's in the process of hiring an agent
The last St. John's player to leave early for the NBA draft was Omar Cook, who was chosen in the second round in 2001.
