WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One of the best basketball players in the Big Ten conference may not be back with the Boilermakers next season. Purdue's Carsen Edwards declared Monday for the NBA Draft.

The sophomore will not hire an agent yet, meaning that he retains the option to return to Purdue for his junior year. Edwards will hope to participate in the NBA Draft Combine in mid-May. He'll then have until May 30 to decide whether to go pro or return to Purdue.

Edwards was a second team All-American this season while averaging 18.5 points per game. He became just the seventh player in Purdue history to reach 1,000 career points in his first two seasons.
