Iowa State’s men’s basketball team lost its fourth scholarship player of the offseason on Tuesday when sophomore Tyrese Haliburton announced he was entering the NBA Draft.

The 6-foot-5, 175-pound point guard projects as a top 10 pick in this year’s draft.

Haliburton concludes his career with 574 points, 267 assists, 249 rebounds, 108 steals and 45 blocked shots. He is one of just two players nationally to record 500 points, 200 rebounds, 250 assists, 100 steals and 40 blocked shots the last two seasons.

As a sophomore, he averaged 15.2 points and 6.5 assists per game in 22 games before ending his season early due to injury.

At the time of his injury, Haliburton ranked among the Big 12 Conference’s top 10 in scoring (15.2), assists (6.5), steals (2.5), assist-to-turnover ratio (2.3), field goal percentage (50.4), 3-point field goal percentage (41.9), 3-point field goals made per game (2.4) and minutes played (36.7).
