Syracuse guard, Tyler Ennis has declared for the 2014 NBA draft after just one year of college basketball, according to the school.

A statement on Syracuse's website from the player today read:

"I'd like to thank Coach Boeheim, the coaching staff, my teammates and the amazing fans of Syracuse for the opportunity to play at a great university like Syracuse. I feel this experience has helped prepare me to fulfil my lifelong dream – to play in the NBA."

Ennis averaged 12 points and five assists per game with the Orange this past year as he made an instant impact at the collegiate level for Syracuse.

Boeheim's team impressed early in the season, winning 25 straight games to begin the year before hitting a losing streak later in the year.

Syracuse were beaten by Dayton in the round of 32 stage of the NCAA tournament last weekend.

Ennis, who hails from Ontario is expected to be a high draft pick but it will depend on which other players declare their intentions to leave college on just how highly he will be valued by NBA teams.
