Five Minnesotans have entered the NBA Draft process this year.

Are there any Minnesotans not entering the NBA Draft? That's an exaggeration, of course, but another Minnesota native has put his name into the draft after an outstanding freshman season at Stanford University. 

Tyrell Terry, a 6-foot-1 point guard who averaged 14.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.2 assists this past season, announced Monday that he's declaring for the NBA Draft. 

"With all things considered, I have decided to chase a childhood dream and declare for the 2020 NBA draft," Terry wrote. "I am confident in my abilities to play at the highest level and look forward to giving it 100% at each step throughout this process." 

Terry was arguable the second-best freshmen in the Pac 12. The best? Former Hopkins standout Zeke Nnaji, who has also declared for the NBA Draft after being named the Pac 12 Newcomer of the Year. 

Terry and Nnaji join fellow Minnesotans Daniel Oturu (Gophers), Tre Jones (Duke) and McKinley Wright (Colorado) to enter the draft, although Wright hasn't hired an agent and could still choose to return to Colorado by the June 3 deadline.
