FAYETTEVILLE  (KFSM) – Moses Kingsley had one of the more impressive turnarounds from a sophomore to junior seasons and the Arkansas center said he intends to test the NBA Draft.

Kingsley has until May 25 to decide if he wants to stay in the draft or return to Arkansas for his senior season. Kingsley announced he will not hire an agent.

“This is a great opportunity for Moses to get an evaluation for the next level and take full advantage of the new rules in place,” Arkansas coach Mike Anderson said. “He emerged as one of the elite players in the SEC this year and we fully support his decision to explore his options.”

Kingsley averaged 15.9 points and led the Razorbacks with 9.3 rebounds per game.

“After thinking about my future and talking with Coach Anderson and the rest of the coaching staff, I have decided to enter the 2016 NBA Draft without hiring an agent,” Kingsley said. “I feel that getting an evaluation on myself after my junior year is the right thing to do while still keeping eligibility to play for my Hogs. I can’t wait to see what God has for me in the future.”
