Maryland star Jalen Smith to leave school for NBA draft

Maryland forward Jalen Smith intends to enter the 2020 NBA Draft and forgo his remaining two years of eligibility. Smith averaged 15.5 points and 10.5 rebounds as a sophomore, helping the Terrapins to a 24-7 finish and a share of the Big Ten regular-season title. Maryland made the NCAA Tournament during Smith’s freshman year and was poised to return as a high seed before the coronavirus brought an abrupt end to the 2019-20 season.
