Wendell Carter has declared for the draft. He posted this on his instagram account:

“I want to thank Duke University, my coaches and teammates for helping me so much, not only on the court, but off it as well. We’re all brothers, we all have each others’ backs. I’m really going to miss being around my friends, but I’m really going to cherish the moments we had together. I’m very excited and very happy to say I was part of something special here at Duke.”

It was memorable birthday. He didn't become a millionaire today but he made the decision that he would become one very soon.

We were highly impressed with Carter’s passion and intelligence. Best of luck to him as he moves on to a lucrative professional career.
