As of Friday morning, a second Wolverine has declared for the 2018 NBA Draft.

Charles Matthews announced on Twitter that he will test the NBA waters without hiring an agent, meaning he can still regain his remaining two years of college eligibility.

Matthews will have until May 30 to decide if he will return to school or not. That date marks 10 days after the NBA Draft Combine is complete.

The Kentucky transfer averaged 13 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in his first active season on Michigan’s roster. In the Wolverines run to the NCAA title game, Matthews averaged 14.3 points per game over the six-game span.

Matthews is not currently projected as a draft pick in most mock drafts today, but his slashing ability and athleticism are what scouts look for. Matthews struggled most with his shot, shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and just 55.8 percent from the charity stripe.

Moritz Wagner is the other Wolverine who declared for the NBA Draft but he hired an agent, eliminating his college eligibility.
