The trend of underclassmen entering the NBA draft continued on Wednesday after Arkansas Forward Michael Qualls announced he would forgo his final year or eligibility.
The Louisiana native took to Twitter to make his announcement.
During his junior campaign, he averaged 15.9 points per game and helped the Razorbacks reach the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2008.

The Arkansas Razorbacks have had a solid season; one that will continue in the Big Dance for sure. At this point they just want to keep everyone healthy and playing well. However, against South Carolina just playing well was almost not enough. The Razorbacks were up by 11 at the half, but late in the game found themselves down big and staring defeat right in the face.That it, until...
Arkansas guard Michael Qualls’ Twitter handle is @Mr_WALKONAIR, and for good reason. Few can get up and throw down like the 6-foot-6 Razorback. Arkansas leads Alabama 34-30 at halftime of tonight’s SEC contest, and Qualls will probably ensure that the game ends up getting some solid SportsCenter time tonight. With just over two minutes left in the half, Qualls had a thunderous...
Arkansas Razorbacks guard Michael Qualls is quickly becoming one of the most exciting players in college basketball and his Hogs are off to a good start as they are 13-2 overall and 2-0 in the SEC. Check out this alley-oop from their victory over Vanderbilt….
Michael Qualls remembers the atmosphere inside Mizzou Arena last season all too well, even if he'd like to forget the result.
''It was crazy; I felt the hate,'' Qualls said. ''It's just a crazy atmosphere. You can tell it (was about) things more than basketball.''
Those ''things'' the Razorbacks guard referred to were actually one thing, in particular - Mike Anderson.

Arkansas fell to 2-6 in SEC play (13-8 overall) after an 88-74 loss to LSU in Baton Rouge Saturday.
Absolutely nothing good came of this game. It was a road game but not only that; Arkansas was playing without Michael Qualls and Alandise Harris. Qualls and Harris did...
Even before his dunk against Kentucky, Arkansas' Michael Qualls was off to a strong start for the Razorbacks.
A poor start to Southeastern Conference play, however, has gotten in the way. Arkansas, which hosts Auburn (8-8, 0-5) on Saturday, has lost four of its first five games in SEC play.
If the Razorbacks (12-6, 1-4 SEC) are going to bounce back, they need better play from Qualls...
