Jordan To Stay In NBA Draft, A&M Career Is Over

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION -- DeAndre Jordan is leaving Texas A&M after one season.

Coach Mark Turgeon said Monday the 7-foot freshman center will
stay in the NBA draft with hopes of becoming the third Aggie taken
in the first round since 2005.

Jordan averaged 7.9 points and a team-high 6.0 rebounds last
season. The Aggies lost to UCLA in the second round of the NCAA
tournament.

Texas A&M's Acie Law was taken 11th by Atlanta last year, and
Antoine Wright went 15th to New Jersey in 2005.
