ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia Tech guard Javaris Crittenton will remain in the NBA draft, deciding to turn pro after one season with the Yellow Jackets.
Crittenton made the decision after meeting with his family and coach Paul Hewitt. The guard tied for the team scoring lead at 14.4 points per game and ranked second in the ACC with an average of 5.8 assists.
The school announced his decision in a statement Friday.
``Everyone has given me their support and blessing,'' Crittenton said. ``I see this as an opportunity, and I plan to put my best foot forward and give it my all. I'd like to thank all of my coaches, teammates and fans for a great time at Georgia Tech.''
Crittenton helped lead Tech to a 20-12 record and a berth in the NCAA tournament.
Another Georgia Tech freshman, forward Thaddeus Young, has entered his name in the draft but has yet to hire an agent. He has until June 18 to withdraw.
