COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) -- With PJ Dozier declaring for the NBA Draft, there are some important dates Gamecock fans should understand, as WACH FOX's Mike Uva explains:

- Underclassmen have until April 24 to declare for the NBA Draft and can maintain their college eligibility as long as they don't sign with an agent.

- 60-70 prospects will be invited to the NBA Draft Combine, which will take place from May 11-15.

- Early entrants have until May 25 to withdraw from the NBA Draft. If a player does not withdraw their name by then they will automatically forfeit their remaining NCAA eligibility, regardless if whether or not they have an agent and get drafted on June 23.
