In a surprising move, Georgetown sophomore Hollis Thompson has submitted his name for the NBA Draft, the school confirmed Friday.

Thompson won’t hire an agent. He has until May 8 to withdraw from the draft and preserve his college eligibility.


The 6-foot-7, 205-pound Thompson was only Georgetown’s fourth-leading scorer last season, averaging 8.8 points per game. With the graduation of Austin Freeman and Chris Wright, the small forward was expected to help fill the scoring void they leave.
