Vanderbilt Commodores guard Wade Baldwin IV will enter the NBA draft, he announced Tuesday.

Baldwin just completed his sophomore season at Vanderbilt, averaging 14.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game. Baldwin was second-team All-SEC this season, and was a member of the All-SEC freshman team last year.

“After careful consideration and discussion of my options with my family and coaches, and soul-searching within myself, I have decided to part ways with one of the finest institutions in the world, a legendary gymnasium, a great group of teammates, and my dedicated coaching staff, and officially declare for the 2016 NBA Draft,” Baldwin said in a statement.
