In a stunning twist of events, Kobe Paras posted a 1 minute video on his Twitter account containing a highlight reel of himself going through the motions on a basketball court and then capping it off with a teaser.

“I’m going pro,” was Paras’ short message.

While it was pretty vague considering he hasn’t even established his collegiate career yet, all indications point to him joining the upcoming 2018 NBA Rookie Draft in June.

The 6-foot-6 son of former PBA superstar Benjie Paras initially committed to UCLA after spending high school at Cathedral and Middlebrooks Academy but withdrew even before the season started due to failure to meet the school’s academic requirements.

He transferred to Creighton but lasted only one season after failing to secure a regular spot on the team’s rotation. He was on the move again, this time to Cal State Northridge where he had to sit out his first year as prescribed by the NCAA for transferees.

Paras’ surprising move came after the school decided to terminate the services of head coach Reggie Theus.
