Tyler Ulis Announces He's Headed To The NBA, Will Hire Agent

Kentucky sophomore point guard Tyler Ulis has made a decision on his future - he's headed to the NBA. Ulis, who averaged 17.3 points per game this past season, made the official announcement Wednesday morning, adding that he will hire an agent. That means he won't be able to change his mind and return to the program.

Ulis, at 5-foot-9, is one of the more intriguing NBA prospects. The UK fan-favorite thanked his coaches and fans for the past two years.
