Thompkins, Leslie Declare For Draft

Trey Thompkins, a junior power forward from Georgia, has declared for the 2011 NBA Draft and has hired an agent.

Teammate Travis Leslie will put his name in the draft, but won't hire an agent.

"I have spoken with my family and coaches about my situation, and I feel that it's best for me to forgo my senior season and enter the NBA draft," Thompkins said. "I would just like to thank everyone who has supported me in this decision."

"Travis has exercised his right to test the waters as a junior," Mark Fox said. "We will help him manage that process in a timely manner."

The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw their names from the draft and preserve eligibility is May 8.
