Mississippi State sophomore Robert Woodard II will enter the 2020 NBA Draft, ESPN reported Thursday.

A four-star recruit in the Class of 2018, Woodard averaged 11.4 points and 6.5 rebounds for the Bulldogs during the 2019-20 season.

"I am going in to the draft with the intention of not going back to school," Woodard told ESPN. "I am maintaining my eligibility because of the uncertainty about the dates and what workouts will look like, but I don't look it at is as testing the waters. I am all in with this thing."

The 6-foot-7 forward is the No. 24 prospect in the ESPN Top 100. He was just one of three Power 5 conference players last season to average more than 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block per game, joining Colorado's Tyler Bey and Michigan's Jon Teske.

He hit 42.9 percent of his shots (30 of 70) from 3-point territory (30-of-70).

The NBA draft is scheduled for June 25.
