BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU center Glen "Big Baby" Davis said Tuesday that he is leaving school to enter the NBA draft.

"After my toughest year, I now feel I am physically and mentally ready for the NBA," Davis said during an announcement hosted by LSU.

The 6-foot-9, 290-pound Davis was an AP second team All-America selection during the 2005-06 season, when LSU went to the Final Four. This season, the junior averaged 17.7 points and 10.4 rebounds and missed several late-season games with a strained quadriceps.

"Last year, the team had great success. I was part of only four [LSU] teams to make it to the Final Four," Davis said. "I decided to stay and hoped to build on that this year. Unfortunately that didn't happen."

Head coach John Brady said last week that Davis had been meeting with pro sports agents and that he was leaning toward turning pro, so the formal announcement that Davis had decided to hire an agent and enter the NBA draft was not a surprise.

With career totals of 1,587 points, 916 rebounds and 110 blocks, Davis is the only LSU player other than Shaquille O'Neal to surpass 1,500 points, 900 rebounds and 100 blocks.
