According to sources I have talked to and phone calls I have made, all indications are that Jarvis Varnado will declare for the NBA draft or may have already done so.
My sources are also saying that Jarvis will not sign with an agent. It also appears that this is more of an effort to test the NBA waters and the possibility that Jarvis returns for his senior season at Mississippi State are very strong.
Jarvis led the SEC in blocks each of the last two seasons, breaking the single season league mark last season.
The rising senior sparked a late season run through the SEC tournament which resulted in the tournament championship and a berth in the NCAA men's tournament.
Varnado has until June 15th to withdraw his name from the NBA draft pool which would enable him to return to Mississippi State for his senior season.
We expect to have more on the story as details come available.
