Highly touted Missouri freshman Michael Porter Jr. declared his intention to enter the 2018 NBA Draft in a video posted to his Instagram account on Monday.


The 6-10 Porter played only two minutes for Missouri in the season opener before going out with a back injury. He was initially ruled out for the season after undergoing back surgery in November but was able to return for two postseason games, scoring 12 and 16 points, respectively.

Porter played a total of 53 minutes for the Tigers, shooting 10 of 30 from the floor. Despite the limited minutes, Porter is expected to be a high lottery pick in June.
