Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech sophomore Gani Lawal will make

himself available for the NBA draft but is protecting his option of

continuing his college career.

Lawal said Monday he will enter his name in the NBA draft. The

6-foot-9 forward said he will not hire an agent. He has until June

15 to remove his name from the draft and protect his eligibility at

Georgia Tech.

Lawal said his plan is to "go through the interview and workout

process and see where I might fit in."

Lawal scored 15.1 points per game and led the Yellow Jackets

with 9.5 rebounds per game, the second-highest average in the

Atlantic Coast Conference.
