This wasn’t an April Fools Day joke. Jacob Evans officially declared for the NBA Draft on Sunday, putting an end to an excellent three-year career with the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Evans was a top 100 prospect who came in and made an immediate impact for the Bearcats. In his career, he averaged 11.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game, while shooting .429/.377/.755. The 6’6” guard/forward also had a PER of 20.5 and accumulated 15.1 win shares across 105 games.

According to NBADraft.net, Evans is a late second round prospect, with the site’s most recent mock draft having him go No. 53 overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. However, other folks have his stock much higher, with SB Nation’s own Ricky O’Donnell and Matt Ellentuck projecting him as the No. 29 pick to the Golden State Warriors.

Wherever Evans ends up next year, he’ll always have fans in the 513.
