LOS ANGELES CA- FEBRUARY 21 Oregon center Bol Bol looks on before a college basketball game between the Oregon Ducks and the USC Trojans

After nine games of college basketball - where he averaged 21 points, 9.8 rebounds, and 2.7 blocked shots a game - and a season that ended early because of foot surgery, OR freshman center Bol Bol is headed to the NBA Draft.

In his short stint with the Ducks this season, Bol averaged 21 points, 10 rebounds and almost three blocks per game on 56 percent shooting from the field and an impressive 52 percent from 3-point range (on almost 3 attempts per game).

It's certainly not fair to label Bol Bol either way, though all it takes for one team to be willing to roll the dice on a player that could possibly chance the game once again. OR reached the Sweet 16 without him before losing to Virginia on Thursday night. That became official on Friday, when Nick DePaula of ESPN reported that Bol had hired an agent and will enter the 2019 NBA Draft.

Bol began this season as a Youtube sensation, committing to OR as a 7-foot-2 behemoth the likes of which we hadn't seen since, well, his father.

I thought of all the other men around and behind us who couldn't help but see their behinds", she wrote. Women are wearing the trousers now, gurl, and they won't judge you for what you have on.

Bol's OR career may have been brief, but we'll be saying his name a lot more in the National Basketball Association.

Bol played in nine games for OR before suffering an ankle injury in mid-December and an eventual stress fracture in his foot that would indefinitely sideline him and end his collegiate playing career.

Bol, who was on the bench supporting his teammates Thursday as the Ducks were bounced from the NCAA tournament, is expected to be a lottery pick.
