In a surprising move Purdue announced this morning that freshman Nojel Eastern would declare for the NBA Draft:
Purdue freshman Nojel Eastern has announced his intention to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft but will not hire an agent, maintaining his amateurism.
Eastern will put his name into the NBA Draft, making him eligible to be selected on draft night June 21. He will be able to start attending workouts scheduled by NBA teams April 24 and is eligible to compete in the NBA Draft Combine, if selected, from May 16 to 20 in Chicago. He then has 10 days (May 30 deadline) to weigh his options and keep his name in or withdrawal for the NBA Draft. Withdrawing his name from the Draft will maintain his eligibility in intercollegiate athletics.
