(WOAY) – Marshall’s junior guard Jon Elmore has announced Monday afternoon that he is declaring for the NBA draft and will not sign with an agent. Not signing with an agent allows Elmore to withdraw his name and return to Marshall up to ten days after the NBA draft combine. Last year, Elmore declared for the draft in March and withdrew in May. Elmore led his team to the NCAA tournament this year for the first time since 1987. Earlier this season he was awarded conference tournament MVP and he was also named to the All-C-USA first team for the second straight year.
UPDATE (3/27): C.J. Burks and Ajdin Penava both declared for the NBA Draft on Tuesday, but like Elmore, neither has signed with an agent, leaving open the possibility of returning to Marshall for the 2018-19 season. Burks was selected to Conference USA’s Second Team, while Penava was named to the Third Team, All-Defensive Team, and was named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.
