Washington point guard Markelle Fultz is declaring for the NBA Draft.

Fultz is a 6-foot-4 combo-guard and the potential No. 1 pick in the 2017 Draft. His decision is not a surprise.

Washington went 9-22 this season and just 2-16 in the Pac-12, losing their last 13 games. Fultz did not play in six of Washington’s final eight games on the season due to a nagging knee injury. He did average 23.2 points, 5.9 assists and 5.7 boards in the games he did play.
