BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) - California forward Jaylen Brown is leaving after one season and declaring for the NBA draft.

The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year and the school made the announcement Thursday, hardly a surprise given he wasn’t expected to stay at Cal beyond his freshman season.

Brown averaged 14.6 points and 5.4 rebounds while starting all 34 games for the Golden Bears, who lost as a No. 4 seed in the first round of the NCAA Tournament to Hawaii.

Brown and local Oakland prep star Ivan Rabb made up a top recruiting class for coach Cuonzo Martin, and Cal went 23-10 and tied for third place in the Pac-12 at 12-6.
