(Sports Network) - Miami-Florida sophomore guard Shane Larkin is set to make
an announcement about his playing future on Sunday, but a report has indicated
that he will enter the NBA Draft.
Yahoo! Sports cited league sources on Friday as saying Larkin has set up
meetings with prospective agents next week in New York.
Larkin responded to a report earlier this week that speculated about his
future, saying he hadn't yet declared for the draft.
"Don't listen to whoever put the rumor out that I declared," Larkin wrote on
his Twitter feed. "It isn't true. I will make an announcement Sunday at 6
about my future."
Sunday is the deadline for underclassmen to make their decisions.
Larkin helped the Hurricanes to an ACC regular-season title and a conference
tournament championship this past season. He averaged a team-best 14.5 points
and 4.6 assists in 36 games.
Miami finished 29-7, falling to Marquette in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA
