Harrison Barnes, John Henson, Kendall Marshall All Declare For 2012 NBA Draft

North Carolina stars Harrison Barnes, John Henson and Kendall Marshall, all of whom are likely first-round picks, will declare for the 2012 NBA Draft, the school announced on Thursday. None of the three are surprising entrants, as all have lingered in the top 20 of most NBA mock drafts.

Henson and Barnes were both among the first 10 picks in SB Nation's most recent mock draft, while Marshall's stock was rising before a season-ending injury in UNC's third-round NCAA Tournament win over Creighton. The trio will join senior Tyler Zeller as draft-eligible prospects. Zeller is also expected to be a first-round pick. T

The Tar Heels' fifth NBA prospect, freshman James Michael McAdoo, has yet to make a decision on his NBA future.

Barnes entered the year as the most highly-regarded of the five NBA prospects, but saw his stock drop after struggling in the Tar Heels' two NCAA Tournament games without Marshall.
