Georgia junior Travis Leslie announced on Tuesday that he will keep his name in the NBA Draft and thus closing the door on the possibility of playing for the Bulldogs next season.
“I would like to thank UGA for giving me the opportunity, as well as Coach [Mark] Fox and the staff in helping me to improve my game," Leslie said in a statement. "Last but not least, I’d like to thank the Georgia fans for their support over the past three years.”
Leslie averaged 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds last season.
The 6-foot-4 guard is projected as a borderline first-round pick.
