USC Trojans guard Julian Jacobs will hire an agent and officially enter the NBA Draft, giving up an opportunity to return to school — ESPN reported Thursday.

Jacobs was named to the All-Pac 12 First Team in 2016. He averaged 11.6 points per game, leading USC to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in five years. His official declaration hits the Trojans program hard next season.

USC is already losing Katin Reinhardt, Darion Clark, Malik Marquetti and Malik Martin to transfers. Andy Enfield will have to deal with a completely revamped roster for next season.
