Jerami Grant will leave Syracuse and enter the NBA draft, a source told SI's Pete Thamel on Monday.

The 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward averaged 12.1 points, 6.8 rebounds and shot 49.6 percent per game last season for the Orange (28-6), who lost in to Dayton in the round of 32.

The 20-year-old out of Hyattsville, Md., had seven double-doubles in 32 games. He is expected to be a mid to late first round pick.
