LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -Tyler Herro will submit his name for the NBA Draft and hire an agent, UK reports.

Under new rules, Herro can sign with an NCAA-certified agent, receive feedback and then remain eligible to play.

Herro will have until May 29 (10 days after the NBA Draft Combine) to make a final decision as to whether he wishes to remain in the draft or return to Kentucky.

“My freshman season at Kentucky was incredible,” Herro said. “As Coach Cal and the staff promised, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. This staff challenged me to be the best version of myself. I’m proud of what we accomplished as a team and how I elevated my game personally. After talking with my family, Coach Cal and the staff, I’ve decided to test the waters and see where I stand in the NBA Draft process.
