North Carolina State was eliminated from the 2013 NCAA Tournament and now one of their stars could soon be announcing his decision to leave college for the NBA Draft. According to a CBS Sports report, Lorenzo Brown has decided to go pto. Fellow junior guard C.J. Leslie could follow Brown to the NBA in the coming weeks.

Per the CBS Sports report:

The 6-foot-5 junior point guard averaged 12.4 points, 7.2 assists and 4.3 rebounds this season for an N.C. State team that was 24-11, 11-7 in the ACC and lost to Temple in the second round. An announcement could come this week from the school.

Brown is projected by many scouts as a late first-round pick.

In CBS Sports’ latest NBA mock draft projection, they had the junior guard being selected with the 28th overall pick.
