Purdue sophomore all-american Caleb Swanigan is declaring for the NBA Draft, but he will not be signing with an agent.

A 6-foot-9, 250 pound forward, Swanigan averaged 18.5 points and 12.5 boards this past season, earning a spot as a Naismith Award finalist for the Big Ten champs.

But he’s projected as a late-first round pick at best. Maintaining his eligibility, at least initially, seems to be the safer option.
