Wayne Selden Jr. Posts To Instagram After Declaring For The NBA Draft: "It's Been An Honor"

One of the top players in Kansas' loaded backcourt is off to the NBA Draft. The program put out a release to announce that Wayne Selden will declare for the draft. He will hire an agent, which prevents him from withdrawing his name and returning to Kansas after the combine.

Kansas men's basketball guard Wayne Selden Jr. has declared for the 2016 NBA Draft and will be leaving KU, Selden and head coach Bill Self announced Tuesday.

"The last three years have been a true blessing to experience as a Jayhawk, an opportunity I am so thankful for," Selden said. "That being said, I'd like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2016 NBA draft. It has always been our plan that my college experience would be three years. I plan to hire representation in the coming weeks.

"I want to thank the Kansas fans for their support as a Jayhawk over the years. The support is unmatched and has been the driving force in games," Selden added. "I would like to thank each of my brothers. Together we battled through the tough and celebrated the good. Giving our all for one another. I'd also like to thank Coach Self and the entire Kansas basketball staff. I've received three years of meaningful experiences and guidance both on and off the court."

 Selden finishes his career with some pretty impressive numbers.
