Earlier today, Peter Bean of Burnt Orange Nation reported that Texas sophomore guard Isaiah Taylor will be foregoing the remainder of his eligibility and declaring for the 2015 NBA Draft.
Taylor, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound guard, averaged 13.1 points, 4.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds a game in 2014-15. Most draft analysts believe it would be a mistake for the sophomore to leave school early for the NBA. He is not projected to be a first-round pick.
The Texas guard has addressed the report on Twitter, claiming it is false.

This doesn't mean Burnt Orange Nation's report is false. It's pretty typical for a player to deny that he's leaving school early, only to later say that he is.
We'll have more as this develops.
