SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Syracuse sophomore point guard Jonny Flynn has signed with an agent, officially ending his college basketball career.
In a video interview posted Thursday on Syracuse.com, Flynn says leaving Syracuse early to enter the NBA draft was the hardest decision of his life.
Flynn says he signed with Leon Rose's Creative Artists Agency Sports. The NBA draft will be held June 25.
Flynn's teammates Paul Harris and Eric Devendorf also are planning to declare for the NBA draft, but have not said whether they will hire agents. Underclassmen have until April 26 to declare for the NBA draft. Athletes have until June 15 to withdraw, if they do not hire an agent.
