STORRS, Conn. (AP) -Connecticut freshman basketball player Ater Majok, whose name has come up in recruiting allegations against the school, has declared for the NBA draft.
Majok, a 6-foot-10 forward, says he won't hire an agent and intends to get feedback from the NBA and return to school. He has until June 15 to withdraw his name and retain his eligibility.
Majok, a former refugee from Sudan, is not eligible to play at Connecticut until the end of the 2009 fall semester.
Reports have linked Josh Nochimson, a former UConn student manager, to the appearance of Majok at a basketball tournament last year in Kentucky. Phone calls between Nochimson and UConn's assistant coaches are at the center of a NCAA investigation into possible recruiting violations.
