UTEP sophomore forward Vince Hunter will declare for the upcoming NBA draft, per ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
The 6-foot-8 forward made the Conference USA first team this season, leading the Miners with 14.9 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. He shot 52.6 percent from the floor as UTEP went 22-11 and fell in the first round of the NIT to Murray State.
Hunter was named Conference USA's Freshman of the Year in 2013-14. The 20-year-old is not projected to be selected in DraftExpress.com's latest mock draft. The site ranks him 30th among college sophomores.
