WASHINGTON (AP) - All-American Otto Porter Jr. is leaving Georgetown after his sophomore season and declaring himself eligible for the NBA draft.
Porter announced his decision at a news conference on campus Monday with Hoyas coach John Thompson III.
Porter was the Big East player of the year and finished second in the voting behind Michigan's Trey Burke for The Associated Press player of the year award.
Helping a team that was unranked in the preseason reach as high as No. 5 in the AP poll, Porter averaged 16.2 points and 7.5 rebounds, both highs for Georgetown.
The Hoyas were a No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament, but lost their opening game to Florida Gulf Coast and finished 25-7.
