San Diego State junior guard Jamaal Franklin has elected to forgo his senior season, hire an agent and enter the 2013 NBA Draft, which is slated for June 27. The two-time Associated Press All-American leaves SDSU after leading the Aztecs in scoring and rebounding the last two years. A product of Hawthorne, Calif., Franklin spent three seasons on Montezuma Mesa, helping the Aztecs to three straight NCAA appearances, three NCAA tournament victories, which were the first three in school history, three consecutive seasons of 23 wins or more, and three Mountain West championships (2011 regular season, 2011 tournament, 2012 regular season).

San Diego State sophomore Jamaal Franklin, as assistant coach Tony Bland likes to say, has committed to the NBA for next season. Nothing But Aztecs. Franklin, the Mountain West Player of the Year, indicated he will return to Montezuma Mesa for his junior season, according to Coach Steve Fisher and others in the program. Franklin never actually declared for early entry into the June 28 NBA Draft, as top underclassmen are allowed to do. But he and Fisher did request an evaluation from the NBA’s Undergraduate Advisory Committee, a select group of front-office personnel from NBA teams that provides feedback about a player’s draftability.
