LOS ANGELES (AP) - UCLA guard Jrue Holiday has decided to remain in the NBA draft and will hire an agent, which makes him ineligible to return to the Bruins.

Coach Ben Howland on Saturday confirmed Holiday’s decision.

“I’m sure Jrue will be a great NBA player and have a long career,” Howland said. “We are very happy for him and wish him well. He will always be a part of the Bruin family.”

As a freshman, Holiday started all 35 games last season while helping the Bruins to a 26-9 record and a second-place finish in the Pac-10. He was selected to the conference’s all-freshman team.

Holiday averaged 8.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists.
