AUSTIN -- University of Texas freshman Kevin Durant is done
with college -- and heading for the N-B-A draft.

The 18-year-old Associated Press Player of the Year today
confirms he's leaving the Longhorns.

Durant, in a statement before an Austin news conference, said
he's enjoyed his year at Texas.

He says all the fans made him feel right at home -- and that
he'll "always be a Longhorn."

Durant had an All-American season in which he swept the major
player of the year awards.

Now the question is whether he'll be the first pick of the June
28th draft.

A-P reports Durant and Ohio State's freshman center Greg Oden -who hasn't yet said if he'll leave college - are
considered the likely first two picks
