The next time Tyler Dorsey plays basketball, it will be as a professional as he elected to enter the 2017 NBA Draft and sign an agent on Monday.
The 6-foot-4 guard made the announcement via Twitter to thank his teammates, coaches, and parents for the two years he spent at Oregon.

While he averaged 14.6 points and 3.5 rebounds per game for the duration of his sophomore season, he did his biggest damage in March.
He scored 20 points or more in all five of Oregon’s NCAA Tournament games during their Final Four run and all three of their Pac-12 Tournament games. Dorsey did not have back-to-back 20 point games prior to that point before rattling off eight in a row to close the season, and his Ducks career.
In that eight game stretch, Dorsey averaged 23.3 points per game, and hit an average of over 3.6 threes per game, all while shooting 55.8 percent from deep.
For the latest on Dorsey as well as all things Oregon, keep it locked to your home of the Ducks, 102.9 & 750 The Game!
