UNDATED (AP) _ Georgia Tech forward Thaddeus Young has entered his name for the NBA draft but may return for his sophomore season because he hasn't hired an agent. Yellow Jackets coach Paul Hewitt says Young submitted his name to learn more about his status from league personnel.

Young averaged 14.4 points a game this past season.

And Tennessee guard Chris Lofton will stay in school for his senior season. The Southeastern Conference player of the year says he based his decision on the fact he wasn't projected high enough in the upcoming NBA draft to warrant leaving school early.

Lofton led the SEC in scoring at 20.8 points a game.
