LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Kansas junior guard Lagerald Vick plans to skip his senior season and enter the NBA draft.

Vick averaged 12.1 points and 4.8 rebounds this season while earning All-Big 12 honorable mention honors. His mother, La La Vick, told The Kansas City Star that her son planned to hire an agent.

Vick’s decision, announced Friday in a news release, made him the second Jayhawk to announce for the NBA draft this week. Sophomore Malik Newman announced Wednesday that he would enter the draft and hire an agent.
