Kris Wilkes will test the waters.

The freshman guard has declared for the NBA draft without signing an agent – per a tweet from CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein – meaning he maintains his eligibility for a potential sophomore campaign as a Bruin.

Fellow freshman guard Jaylen Hands made a similar move, announcing that he declared for the draft without signing an agent via Instagram on Wednesday. Former junior guard Aaron Holiday also recently declared via Twitter, but he intends to sign with an agent and will not return to UCLA.

Wilkes appeared in all 33 games last season for UCLA, starting in 32 of them. He averaged 13.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists in just under 30 minutes per game.

The NBA draft will take place June 21.
