Auburn forward Isaac Okoro will explore the process of entering the 2020 NBA Draft, head coach Bruce Pearl said Friday, according to CBS's Jon Rothstein.

Underclassmen can maintain their remaining NCAA eligibility if they withdraw from the draft process by June 3, though ESPN's Jonathan Givony notes that deadline is tied to the draft's originally scheduled date of June 25. With the coronavirus pandemic impacting society well beyond the world of sports, the withdrawal deadline could be subject to change.

Okoro entered the season as the No. 40 overall high school recruit on the 2019 ESPN 100 and quickly cemented a starting role with Auburn. The freshman put up 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds, and two assists per game in 2019-20, helping lead the Tigers to a 25-6 record.
