Freshman Rawle Alkins announced on Wednesday that he has declared for the NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent.
The 6-foot-5 Brooklyn native became a fan favorite this past season due in large part to his effort level and overall attitude. He averaged nearly 11 points and five rebounds per game with his best game of the season arguably coming in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament against North Dakota.
There are not many draft projections that have Alkins in them, as most expect him to be back. However, sources say that he would be a low second rounder if that should he stay in the draft, thus workouts would go a long way in helping his stock.
