Carsen Edwards enters 2018 NBA Draft, does not hire agent

Edwards had an impressive sophomore season for the Boilermakers in 2017-18, and it’s led to a couple of All America honors for the guard. Edwards averaged a team-best 18.5 points per game and recorded a 30-point performance in Purdue’s loss to Texas Tech in the Sweet 16 on Friday. Edwards shot 40.6 percent on 3-pointers and also averaged 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game for the Boilermakers this season.
Edwards, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, can go through the draft process and get feedback with teams and scouts over the next two months. He’ll have until June 11 to decide if he wants to remain in the 2018 NBA Draft or return to school.
His loss would be a big one for Matt Painter’s program, which also loses seniors Vincent Edwards, Isaac Haas, P.J. Thompson and Dakota Mathias.
