Dayton star Obi Toppin announced he has declared for the NBA draft and will sign with an agent to forgo his remaining college eligibility.

The 6-foot-9 forward led the Flyers to a 29-2 record this past season and is expected to be a lottery pick.

Toppin recently edged out Iowa star Luka Garza to become the first player in Dayton history to be named The Associated Press' national player of the year. The 22-year-old was also unanimously selected to the AP All-American first team.

Toppin averaged 20 points, 7.5 boards, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 blocks across 31 appearances in 2019-20. He was a dominant inside-out force, showing an ability to post up and stretch the floor. The A-10 Player of the Year shot 69.8% on 2-point field goals and 63.3% from the field overall to finish fourth and sixth, respectively, in the nation.
