SALT LAKE CITY – Utah State forward Justin Bean announced that he will forgo his final year of eligibility and declare for the 2022 NBA Draft.

Bean announced the decision with a social media post on Wednesday, March 23.

“After talking with Claire, my family, and Coach Odom, I’ve decided to forgo my final year of eligibility and declare for the NBA Draft,” Bean posted. “I’m excited to take this next step in my journey. I’ll always be an Aggie. As true-blooded as they come. The road that got me to where I am now was challenging, but it couldn’t have been more rewarding. I now have something that every college basketball player dreams of having when it’s all said and done… No regrets.”
