Jeremy Lamb Declares For 2012 NBA Draft, Connecticut Announces

University of Connecticut sophomore guard Jeremy Lamb has declared for the 2012 NBA Draft, the school announced in a press release on Tuesday. The sophomore guard led the Huskies in scoring at 17.7 points per game last season.

"It was a difficult decision, but after much prayer and discussion with my parents, I feel that it's in the best interest of me and my family to declare myself eligible for the upcoming NBA Draft and pursue my dream of playing professional basketball," Lamb said in the release.

Lamb is expected to be a late-lottery or mid-first round pick in the draft. SB Nation's Tom Ziller has Lamb going No. 14 overall in his latest NBA mock draft.

Lamb certainly had a good scoring season and possesses good size and upside, but he still saw his stock drop due to Connecticut's struggles defending its championship. Lamb also struggled in many big games this season, which has some scouts wondering if he can contribute at a high level against tougher defenses.
