According to NationofBlue.com, Kentucky junior DeAndre Liggins will remain in the NBA draft.

Liggins and fellow teammate Brandon Knight are two of the three Kentucky players who declared for the draft and decided to remain eligible.  Terrence Jones pulled his name out of the draft yesterday and will return to Kentucky for his sophomore season.

DraftExpress.com has Liggins projected as the No. 53 pick in second round.  NBADraft.net does not list Liggins in either round.
