WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Wake Forest forward Jaylen Hoard says he is staying in the NBA draft and won't return to school for his sophomore year.

Hoard announced his decision Saturday, saying he is "excited to continue my journey at the next level."

He is the fourth Wake Forest player in three years to begin his career in pro basketball early.
