Travis Leslie Remaining In 2011 NBA Draft Alongside Trey Thompkins

The Georgia Bulldogs have announced Travis Leslie will choose to go ahead with his 2011 NBA Draft entry instead of returning to school. The junior had previously left the door open for a return, having not yet signed an agent, but has evidently decided not to wait until the May deadline.

Leslie on his decision to leave the program before his senior season:

After talking it over with my family, I have decided that I will forgo my senior year and enter into the NBA Draft. I would like to thank UGA for giving me the opportunity, as well as Coach Fox and the staff in helping me to improve my game. Last but not least, I'd like to thank the Georgia fans for their support over the past three years.    

The Decatur native has been projected as anywhere from a late first round pick to a late second.
