SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah Utes guard Both Gach will declare for the upcoming NBA Draft but will not hire an agent in order to maintain his college eligibility.

Gach told 247 Sports college basketball insider Evan Daniels. KSL Sports received confirmation from a university spokesperson that Gach is testing the waters.

The Utah guard finished his sophomore season in 2019-20 averaging 10.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game.

The NBA released a new rule a couple of years ago where draft prospects could declare for the draft, do some workouts for NBA teams and receive feedback from scouts before deciding if they want to return to school or enter the NBA Draft and hire an agent.

Gach has a lot of upside to his game with his extreme length for a guard with quick speed in transition along with great ball handling ability.

His offensive game struggled in Pac-12 conference and suffered an injury that forced him to miss four games during that stretch. Gach played very well in the final three games of the season which led to him being named Pac-12 Player of the Week.

Gach has until June 3 to decide to keep his eligibility or hire an agent.
