One of the ACC's best underclassmen has declared for the NBA Draft. It's possible he could return to school, though.

Georgia Tech star sophomore guard Josh Okogie has announced that he'll be testing the NBA Draft waters.

The sophomore guard will not be hiring an agent, though. So, it's possible for him to return to school.

Okogie was one of the best guards in the ACC this season. He averaged 18.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game.

The Yellow Jackets' guard averaged 16 points as a freshman.

Here's his announcement:

“After consulting with my family, I have decided to take this step, gather all the information I can and see what is best for me,” said Okogie. “If it’s in my best interest not to go, then I’ll look forward to being back for my junior year at Georgia Tech.

“This is a very exciting time for me, and I’m very humbled by this opportunity, I would love to have everyone’s continued support and prayers during this process.”

The NBA Draft entrant deadline is June 11. The NBA Draft is June 21 in New York.
