Both Shake Milton and Jarrey Foster are expected to declare for the NBA draft without signing with agents.

Milton, according to a report from 247 Sports, is projected as a borderline first round pick after finally living up to his potential as a junior. The 6-foot-6 point guard has a wingspan that is nearly 7-feet and was having a terrific season -- 18.0 points and 4.4 assists -- before a hand injury sidelined him for the final 11 games.

He’s not the only Mustang that could end up in the NBA after an injury-plagued year. Jarrey Foster told ESPN that he will declare for the draft while looking for a second round guarantee. Foster had a chance to be picked in the first round this year before his season was ended by a torn ACL just 18 games in. He averaged 13.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.2 blocks.

Neither Foster nor Milton will sign with an agent at this time.
