Holiday averaged 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.6 steals starting all 35 games for the Bruins this season. He averaged 27.1 minutes and was on the Pac-10 all-freshman team.
Holiday announced the move Thursday on campus, saying he spoke to his parents and Coach Ben Howland before deciding it was in his best interest ``to test the waters.''
Howland endorsed Holiday's decision, saying, ``There's no question that Jrue is a first-round NBA draft pick.''
The Bruins finished 26-9, losing to Villanova in the second round of the NCAA tournament.
