I know it's only been two days since the Men's NCAA Tournament ended, but the talk about which UK players are declaring for the NBA Draft and which ones are coming back has naturally heated up. 

Sophomore forward PJ Washington, who did declare for last year's draft but he did not hire an agent is all in on his chances on June 20th.


Keldon Johnson is submitting his name for the draft but under new NCAA rules, he can sign with an NCAA certified agent, get feedback at the Draft Combine, and then still have the ability to return to school; his final decision will have to be made by May 29th.

Ashton Hagans, on the other hand, is bypassing the draft and he will be returning for his sophomore season. Hagans left high school early to commit to the Cats.

That leaves Tyler Herro as the only freshman who has yet to comment on his status for next season.

Washington, Johnson, and Herro have all been projected as first-round draft picks
