Texas Tech's Zach Smith Declares for 2017 NBA Draft

LUBBOCK, TX - On Saturday it was announced that Texas Tech basketball's junior forward Zach Smith has declared for the 2017 NBA Draft. 

It was first reported via Twitter by CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein:


According to Rothstein Smith will not hire an agent, which means that he will keep his eligibility for his senior season at Texas Tech. 

The buzz seems to be that Smith in all likelihood is strictly entering the draft process to gain feedback on his potential pro future and what he needs to work on, before returning to Lubbock for his senior season.

As a junior, Smith was second on the team in scoring, averaging 12.1 points per game, 7.2 rebounds per game, and hit 50.7% of his shots from the field.
