Kentucky’s Herro announces he will remain in NBA Draft

Tyler Herro of Kentucky announced he will remain in the NBA Draft.

Tyler Herro of Kentucky announced Tuesday he plans on remaining in the NBA Draft after initially saying he would leave the door open to return to school.

The 6-foot-5 freshman guard made the announcement via a news release, a week after saying he would enter the draft and secure the services of an NCAA-certified agent but would not commit to leaving Kentucky.

However, in the news release, Herro said he is “ready to jump into that next stage.”

Herro was second on the Wildcats in scoring, averaging 14 points per game, and will join teammate P.J. Washington in departing Kentucky early to head for the NBA.
