Aaron Wiggins declares for NBA Draft, maintains eligibility originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
University of Maryland guard Aaron Wiggins has declared for the 2021 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility, the junior announced Friday via Instagram.
In three years as a Terrapin, Wiggins saw his numbers rise in virtually every major category from his freshman to junior seasons, as he was given greater responsibility as a starting guard for Mark Turgeon’s squad. This past season, which saw Maryland finish with a 17-14 record (8th in the Big Ten) before losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament to Alabama, Wiggins average career highs of 14.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg and 2.5 apg in 33.0 minutes per game.
Should Wiggins not be selected in this year’s draft and not sign with an agent, he will be eligible to return to Maryland for his senior season. Already 22 years old, the Greensboro, NC native is in the older echelon of draft prospects, but his size (6-foot-6, 200 pounds) as a wing could prove to be a valuable asset for some teams.
