KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A second Porter has declared for the NBA Draft, but this one will not hire an agent. This leaves open the possibility that freshman Jontay Porter returns to Mizzou.
In a statement the University released on Twitter, Porter said, "I have loved everything about my experience, on and off the court as a member of the Mizzou family. But have always dreamed of playing in the NBA. While I am not making any final decisions at this point, I am not hiring an agent and will be diligent in complying with all NCAA rules to ensure that I maintain my eligibility to compete at the NCAA level for Mizzou in the future, I am going to declare for the NBA Draft. This will allow me to evaluate my status with NBA teams so that I can make a fully educated decision on my future. I am excited for this opportunity and appreciate the continued support from Mizzou nation throughout this process."
