Texas A&M sophomore forward Robert Williams is turning pro.

Williams announced his decision to enter the NBA draft and bypass his final two seasons of eligibility after the seventh-seeded Aggies lost to third-seeded Michigan 99-72 in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night.

“It’s something I’ve been dreaming about – the next step,” said Williams, who scored 12 points and added six rebounds, three assists and three blocks in his final game with the Aggies.

Williams, 19 years old and listed at 6-10, will finish the semester at Texas A&M before pursuing his dream of playing in the NBA.

“It’s just a blessing,” Williams said as he stood in a locker room in the bowels of the Staples Center, home to the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and Clippers. “Every kid dreams of going pro in a sport they love.

The NBA and National Basketball Players Association’s conversations on eliminating the one-and-done entry rule have centered on lowering the minimum age requirement no sooner than the 2020 draft, league sources told ESPN.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver and NBPA executive director Michele Roberts have discussed scenarios to end the requirement for American players to wait one year after high school graduation to enter the NBA draft, but no formal agreement could be reached before the NBPA’s executive committee, including president Chris Paul, gather for a meeting at the end of the NBA playoffs in June.

Silver and Roberts have both expressed a desire to change the rule, but it remains to be seen how the process of negotiating a rule change between the league and players will unfold.

I can’t believe the time has come for me to say this but I would like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft. First off I want to thank Jesus for putting me here and allowing me to show my gifts that he has given me. I want to thank my family and everyone who has been in my corner since day one, the support has meant a lot to me. I also want to thank those who doubted me and continue to doubt me, it only pushes me to get better every single day. I learned a lot this year on and off of the court and I’m thankful for the opportunity. Thank you Duke!!! 🔵⚪#JREAM
