From Maryland Media –

Jalen Smith to Enter 2020 NBA DraftCOLLEGE PARK, Md. (April 7, 2020) – Maryland men’s basketball All-American forward Jalen Smith intends to enter the 2020 NBA Draft and forgo his remaining eligibility.

“After consultation with my family and coaches, I am thankful and grateful to announce that the time is right for me to move forward to the next phase in my basketball career and declare for the 2020 NBA Draft,” said Smith. “I am thankful to the coaches and staff at the University of Maryland who afforded me the opportunity to stay home to receive an education and play basketball at the college of my dreams. I’m also thankful to my brothers who donned the Terrapin uniform with me at XFINITY Center and to the best fans in all of college sports, Terp Nation.”

“I am thrilled for Jalen and his family for making such an important and exciting decision,” said head coach Mark Turgeon. “From the minute we started recruiting Jalen, we knew the kind of quality player and person we would be getting and he lived up to it in every way. As incredible of a player Jalen is on the court, he is that and more as an individual off the court. We will miss him in College Park. I cannot wait to watch Jalen at the next level and I wish him and his family nothing but the best on their journey.”
