Kentucky starter Olivier Sarr declares for the 2021 NBA Draft
Olivier Sarr has made his decision, he’s off to the NBA.
Kentucky’s starting center had the opportunity to return for one more season in Lexington after the NCAA gave all players the option of taking a free season of eligibility but four seasons in college was enough for Sarr.
