Kentucky Wildcats point guard Ashton Hagans has officially ended his remaining college eligibility.
On Thursday, Evan Daniels reported that Hagans would be signing with CAA Sports for his professional agency.
Kentucky guard Ashton Hagans is bypassing his remaining college eligibility and signing with CAA Sports, sources tell @247Sports. Hagans averaged 11.5 PPG and 6.4 APG this past season.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) April 30, 2020
College athletes are allowed to declare for the NBA Draft, then sign with an agent and maintain their eligibility if said agent is certified by the NCAA. However, Creative Arts Agency currently does not have anyone in the list of NCAA-certified agents, so this means Hagans is gone for good, which we already knew, but now it’s official.
Earlier this offseason, Tyrese Maxey declared for the draft and signed with Klutch Sports, another agency not certified by the NCAA, so his remaining eligibility is also completely forfeit now.
It’s still unclear who Nick Richards, EJ Montgomery and Immanuel Quickley, but all three previously announced they were also forgoing their remaining eligibility, so chances are they’ll sign with someone not certified by the NCAA.
