TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona freshman guard Kobi Simmons is declaring for the NBA draft and will not return to school.

The school announced Simmons' decision Wednesday.

An athletic 6-foot-5 guard from Atlanta, Simmons was a key member to coach Sean Miller's latest stellar recruiting class.

Simmons appeared in all 37 games and started 19, averaging 8.7 points and 2.0 assists. A good shooter and finisher, he's been projected to be selected in the second round.
