Wichita State guard Landry Shamet has declared for the NBA draft and intends to hire an agent, effectively ending his college career with two seasons of eligibility left.

The 21-year-old Shamet made the announcement Thursday on his Instagram account.

Shamet averaged 14.9 points and 5.2 assists last season, helping the Shockers to a second-place finish in their inaugural season in the American Athletic Conference.

The fourth-seeded Shockers were upset by No. 13 seed Marshall in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament. Shamet was held to 11 points by the Thundering Herd, going 3 of 13 from the field and 0 for 7 from the 3-point arc. He also had four turnovers to go with eight assists.
