Colorado State's Smith to try NBA draft

April 3, 2007 at 2:54 PM   |   Comments

FORT COLLINS, Colo., April 3 (UPI) -- Colorado State junior forward Jason Smith, who led the Rams in scoring the last two seasons, said Tuesday he is making himself available to the NBA draft.

Smith, a 21-year-old 7-footer, averaged 16.8 points and 10.1 rebounds a game for Colorado State last season. He also led the team in scoring as a sophomore and is a two-time All-Mountain West Conference first-teamer.

"I owe it to myself and my family to assess what my possibilities are related to the draft," Smith said. "I want to collect all of the information that I can and be able to make a good decision.

"I have had a great time at Colorado State, but I'm looking forward to this process. I feel I am prepared and I am excited to go as hard as I can to pursue this opportunity."

Smith could return to Colorado State if he doesn't hire an agent and withdraws from the NBA draft, which is scheduled for June 28, by June 18.
