Kentucky guard Cason Wallace will forgo his remaining college eligibility and declare for the NBA draft, he told ESPN's Jonathan Givony on Saturday.

"I'm all in," Wallace said. "This season was fun. It had its ups and downs but the best part was having my brothers with me. We stuck through it and saw it through."

A 6-foot-4 playmaker, Wallace is projected to be a lottery pick. He averaged 11.7 points and 4.3 assists in his lone season with the Wildcats, earning SEC All-Freshman team honors.

The Dallas native racked up 21 points and nine rebounds in Kentucky's second-round loss to Kansas State in the NCAA Tournament.
