Despite its failure to match his school colors, Nick went on to wear that headband for the entirety of his sixth grade basketball season. Catch Nick on Twitter @wha1en.

After Monday’s midnight Eastern Time deadline passed, the NBA released the list of early entries for the 2017 NBA Draft.

A total of 182 players filed paperwork for the draft -- 20 more than a year ago -- including 137 players from American colleges and universities.

Underclassmen who have already signed with an agent cannot return to college, while prospects without an agent will have until May 24 -- 10 days after the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago -- to withdraw.

As has been the case for the past several years, the pool of early entrants continues to swell, as as more prospects are utilizing the draft process as an opportunity to properly gauge their stock, whether they truly intend to leave school or not. Prospects have virtually nothing to lose by declaring for the draft without an agent. A strong performance at the Combine could vault a relatively pedestrian prospect into higher standing, while an unexceptional showing simply encourages a return for more seasoning at the college level.

Listed below are each of the 137 American-schooled prospects, along with their agent status, as well as their projected draft range as of late-April.

Notably absent from the list is former class of 2016 Arizona commit Terrance Ferguson, who is technically not considered an "early entrant" after spending what would have been his freshman year of college playing professionally in Australia. Ferguson is widely touted as a borderline-lottery prospect.

A list of the 45 international early entrants, including projected lottery pick Frank Ntilikina, can be found here, via the NBA’s official release.
