A breakout sophomore season has Dewan Huell looking at his professional options.

The Miami big man will declare for the NBA draft, but not hire an agent, he announced Monday via social media.

“After talking to my coaches and family, I would like to announce that I will be declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft,” Huell wrote. “I will not hire an agent so I can keep my eligibility as a college athlete. I would like to thank the man above for this opportunity, Canes fans and to all those who supported me through the ups and downs.”

After averaging fewer than 20 minutes per game as a freshman, the 6-foot-11 Miami native averaged 11.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game this past season while shooting 57.6 percent from the floor. In a particularly strong big man draft, Huell may be looking at a less-than-ideal draft situation, but, as has so often been noted, it doesn’t cost anything to go find out.
