Semaj Christon leaving Xavier for the NBA

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

The sophomore guard is forgoing the rest of his collegiate career to go pro, per ESPN.

A few days removed from St. John's JaKarr Sampson announcing he will be going pro, another Big East player has decided to flee for the Association.

Xavier sophomore guard Semaj Christon told ESPN College Basketball insider Jeff Goodman that he has decided to turn pro.

Christon put together two solid seasons while he was in Cincinnati under head coach Chris Mack. He saw his TS% and eFG% jump from 50.3 and 45.3 a year ago to 54.4 and 50.1 this season. A native of Cincinnati, the 6'3 guard averaged 15.5 points per game his freshman year, and saw that number increase to 17 this past year.

Currently, Semaj Christon is the 50th ranked prospect on DraftExpress. You can check out Big East Coast Bias writer Harrison Malkin's profile on Christon here.
