 ATLANTA (AP)- Georgia Tech forward Thaddeus Young entered his name in the NBA draft, yet could return for his sophomore season because he hasn't hired an agent.
Coach Paul Hewitt said Tuesday that Young submitted his name to learn more about his status from NBA personnel.
``I'm enjoying my experience at Georgia Tech, both with the basketball program and in school,'' Young said in a statement released by the school. ``Right now, my focus is in finishing out this semester and then gathering more information from the NBA people.''
Young tied for the team lead in scoring, averaging 14.4 points. He and freshman point guard Javaris Crittenton helped the Yellow Jackets to a 20-12 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament. They were knocked out in the first round by UNLV.
Hewitt said Young and his family did not want to elaborate on the decision because the 6-foot-8 forward is concentrating on final exams, which begin Monday. Afterward, he plans to discuss his situation.
``Many players have entered the draft as a means to gather information and then returned to school,'' Hewitt said. ``Right now, Thaddeus is working on finishing this semester, and he intends to take classes this summer.''
