Vanderbilt forward Aaron Nesmith has declared for the 2020 NBA Draft and plans to forego his remaining college eligibility, he told 247Sports' Evan Daniels.

"I've decided to go through the process and intend to hire an agent," Nesmith told Daniels. "I'm just getting ready for the next steps and just learn even more at the highest level because it's always been a dream to play in the NBA, so it's going to be fun to go out there and go through it."

The 6-foot-6 Nesmith broke out in his sophomore season by posting 23 points, 4.9 boards, and 1.4 steals per game, putting himself into draft-lottery consideration. He shot a sizzling 52.2% from 3-point range on 8.2 attempts per contest and 51.2% from the field overall.

However, Nesmith was limited to just 14 games in 2019-20 due to a stress fracture in his foot suffered during January. At the time of his injury, Nesmith ranked fifth nationally in scoring and was one of only two Division I players who'd made at least seven triples in a game four times, according to NBA.com's Chris Dortch.
