University of Kansas star Joel Embiid has decided to enter the NBA draft. That, according to Yahoo Sports.

The 7-foot freshman could be a number one overall choice in the draft.

You may remember, Embiid's season with the Jayhawks ended early because of a stress fracture in his back. He had to sit out the final two regular season games, the Big 12 Tournament and the NCAA Tournament.

A formal announcement on Embiid's decision is expected soon.
