 COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina junior Devan Downey says he will make himself eligible for the NBA draft.
Tuesday's decision doesn't guarantee the guard is leaving the Gamecocks early. Downey says he will not hire an agent, meaning he can choose to return to school if he wants.
South Carolina coach Darrin Horn says he will help Downey collect information to see how high in the draft he might be picked.
By declaring for the draft early, Downey can work out for NBA teams and get advice about his draft standing.
The 5-foot-9 Downey was a team all-Southeastern Conference this season, led the league in steals and averaged 19.8 points a game.
The Gamecocks finished with 21 wins, just missing the NCAA tournament.
