Vanderbilt Commodores guard Darius Garland announced Tuesday that he would be withdrawing from the university to prepare for the 2019 NBA Draft. 

In a tweet, Garland announced his decision and thanked Vanderbilt and coach Bryce Drew.

The freshman guard played just five games for the Dores, averaging just over 16 points, three rebounds, and 2 assists per game before he suffered a meniscus injury to his left knee during the game against Kent State on Nov. 23. 

Right now, the Brentwood Academy alum is projected as a top pick.
