SEATTLE (AP) — Washington freshman swingman Jaden McDaniels has declared for the NBA draft, becoming the latest one-and-done player for the Huskies.

McDaniels, who is projected to go in the middle of the first round, announced his decision on social media late Tuesday night.

McDaniels was inconsistent during his only season at Washington. At times, he was the best player on the court, exhibiting raw skills that have NBA scouts excited about his potential as a 6-foot-9 player on the wing. At other moments, McDaniels showed a lack of maturity and flaws in his game.
