On Tuesday, the NBA released the names of every college basketball player who has declared his intentions to enter the 2017 NBA Draft, and Ohio State junior guard Kam Williams' name was on the list.

If Williams has not hired an agent, he would have until Wednesday, May 24 to remove his name and retain his college eligibility.

Williams started 29 of the Buckeyes' 32 games last season, averaging 9.4 points per game while shooting 39% from the field and 38% from three-point territory.

DraftExpress.com has rated the 44 top pro prospects in the Big Ten, but Williams does not appear on the list. NBADraft.net has a list of the top 100 draft prospects and no Ohio State players made the list.

Williams joins Buckeye center Trevor Thompson in declaring for the NBA Draft. Thompson declared last year as well before removing his name and returning to school. Per ESPN, Thompson has signed with an agent this time, so he will not be back at Ohio State next year.

Williams averaged 7.6 points per game over his three-year career for the Buckeyes.
