One FGCU basketball player made a big move over the weekend, to declare for this year’s NBA draft.
Junior guard Zach Johnson tweeted his decision, and his intent to not hire an agent, which would allow him to maintain his college eligibility and return to the court next season. Good news for Eagles fans!
I have decided to enter the NBA draft with intent to not hire an agent. Therefore, my last year of college eligibility will not be compromised. Thank you everybody that has supported and helped me get to this point 🙏🏾🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/qwAXo46SCN

Johnson will likely gain valuable feedback through the process.
Johnson follows in the footsteps of his teammate and ASUN Player of the Year Brandon Goodwin, who entered the draft before returning to FGCU for a strong senior season that would include leading the Eagles in scoring.
