Jahii Carson tweets that this will be his last season at Arizona State

Aug 6, 2013, 5:34 PM | Updated: 5:34 pm

Following a freshman season where he averaged 18.5 points, 5.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds per game on the way to co-Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors, Arizona State guard Jahii Carson entertained the idea of entering the NBA Draft.

However, after much consideration he decided to return to Tempe for his sophomore season, and the news was met with great celebration (as well as a DJ-adorned) press conference.

Well, it looks like that was a one-time deal, and Sun Devil fans better enjoy the guard’s talents while they still can.

The idea that Carson could very well turn pro after this season is not exactly crazy, as one more excellent season could easily make him a first-round pick. However, there are no guarantees, so the fact that the 20-year-old is being that open about his intentions is a bit curious.
