Final Four Most Outstanding Player and reigning national champion Kyle Guy announced on Tuesday that he will be declaring for the NBA draft and signing with an agent.

Rule changes for this draft allow a player to sign with an agent while retaining his collegiate eligibility so long as he does not accept anything beyond what is outlined in the new NCAA rules.

Guy averaged 15.4 points while shooting 42.9 percent from three this season. He was named the Most Outstanding Player in the Final Four after scoring 24 points in the title game and dropping 15 points while hitting the game-winning free throws in the semifinals.

Ty Jerome and De’Andre Hunter appear to be virtual locks to remain in this year’s draft. Guy’s status is a little bit more up in the air. There’s probably a spot for him in the NBA somewhere given his ability to shoot and his improvement defensively, but it’s less of a sure thing. He’ll be a preseason first-team All-American should be return to Virginia.
