As expected, Arizona State sophomore James Harden is skipping his final two seasons in Tempe and heading to the NBA.

Harden will make it official at a press conference Wednesday, a school official said.

After his poor showing in the NCAA tournament, Harden said he wasn't sure whether he'd declare for the NBA, but those close to the program did not expect him to return. NBAdraft.net projects Harden will be a top-five pick in June's draft.

Harden, 19, averaged 20.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 4.2 assists this past season and was named the Pac-10 player of the year as the Devils reached the second round of the NCAA tournament. Thanks to his play, ASU had consecutive 20-win seasons for the first time since 1981.
