Maryland sophomore guard Kevin Huerter will stay in the 2018 NBA Draft and hire an agent, he announced on Instagram May 30.

The Terps confirmed the news shortly thereafter.

“Kevin has made a significant impact on our program during his two seasons in College Park, [Md.],” Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. “He has worked extremely hard to put himself in this position to be drafted by an NBA franchise. Kevin is an outstanding young man who comes from a great family and has a bright future ahead of him.

“This was a difficult decision for both Kevin and his family knowing how much he loved Maryland and enjoyed college. However, Kevin took his time and gathered the necessary feedback provided by NBA teams to make the best decision. We’re excited for Kevin as he pursues this next step in his career.”
