LEXINGTON, Ky. (WDKY) - Kentucky's Jarred Vanderbilt announced Tuesday that he won't be attending the NBA Combine this weekend in Chicago.

Vanderbilt, along with UK teammates Kevin Knox, P.J. Washington and Hamidou Diallo, were invited to the Combine.

Vanderbilt has not signed with an agent, which allows him to withdraw from the NBA Draft by May 30 and retain his college eligibility.

Vanderbilt missed the entire postseason (6 games) with an ankle injury. He sat out the first half of the season with a foot injury. Overall, Vanderbilt played in 14 of UK's 37 games in his freshman season.
