COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Maryland guard Kevin Huerter has announced that he will declare for the 2018 NBA Draft but has not hired an agent. He has until May 30 to withdraw his name from the NBA Draft and retain his college eligibility.

“This will be a great experience for Kevin to get honest feedback from NBA teams and executives,” said head coach Mark Turgeon. “Taking advantage of this opportunity will allow Kevin and his family to make an informed decision about his future.”

A rising junior and Big Ten All-Academic selection, Huerter was named an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention selection after compiling one of the best three-point shooting seasons in Maryland history as a sophomore. Huerter’s 41.7% three-point field goal percentage ranked ninth in the Big Ten this season, while his 14.8 points per game were second on the team and 16th in the conference. Huerter’s 73 threes are tied for the fifth-most ever in a season by a Terrapin, while the Clifton Park, N.Y. native now ranks 12th all-time in career threes at Maryland (138).
