Texas A&M junior Tyler Davis is declaring for the 2018 NBA draft, a source told ESPN.
Davis will not hire an agent at this time, preserving the option to return to school for his senior year pending the feedback he receives from NBA teams.
The 6-foot-10, 264 pound center averaged 14.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks in 29 minutes per game for Texas A&M, who made the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. He was named First Team All-SEC.
Davis is considered one of the most skilled big men in the college game, with polished footwork, reliable hands, soft touch and an array of moves with his back to the basket. NBA teams will likely want to see him expand his shooting range and become more of a presence defensively on the interior and stepping outside the paint down the road, as he is not a very dynamic athlete.
