Top-30 2020 recruit MarJon Beauchamp skipping college to prepare for draft

It appears another prized high school recruit will forego collegiate basketball.

ESPN top-30 prospect MarJon Beauchamp plans to skip college and prepare for the 2021 NBA Draft, he told ESPN's Jeff Borzello.

"It's 100 percent," Beauchamp said of his decision.

Beauchamp is the 29th-ranked recruit on the ESPN 100 for 2020. He will complete his senior year at Dream City Christian High School before taking part in a 12-month training program at Chameleon BX.

"That's the plan," Beauchamp told 247Sports' Evan Daniels. "It's a new program. I'll be training with this guy named Frank (Matrisciano) for 12 months. I'll be training with him and some NBA ex-coaches."

Based in San Francisco, Chameleon BX is a personalized program designed specifically to help elite high school basketball players prepare physically and mentally for the NBA draft through a combination of fitness and skills training from professional coaches.

"Frank Matrisciano's proven ability to transform athletes, combined with the skills training provided by his accomplished NBA coaching staff is simply a far better option for MarJon than a one-and-done year at college, or any of the other paths we considered before making our decision," Beauchamp's father said in a statement.

Former Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings bench boss Dave Joerger is among the coaches and executives employed by Chameleon BX.

Beauchamp received interest from Arizona, UCLA, Alabama, Arizona State, and his home state of Washington.

The 6-foot-6 wing averaged 26 points, 11 rebounds, and five assists as a junior.
