FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Freshman guard BJ Young of the University of Arkansas men’s basketball team has submitted his name for consideration for the 2012 National Basketball Association’s draft, Head Coach Mike Anderson announced on Friday.

Young has not hired an agent and remains a student at Arkansas.  He has until April 10 to decide if he will remain in the draft or return to Arkansas for his sophomore season.

“BJ is using this time to gather information about his draft potential,” Anderson said.  “By submitting his name for consideration for this year’s draft he will be able to find out what the scouts see in his game and make an informed decision about his future.”

Young led the Razorbacks and all freshmen in the Southeastern Conference this season with 15.3 points per game while shooting 50.4 percent from the floor, a mark that ranked sixth in the league.  He was named second-team All-SEC and to the SEC All-Freshman team by the SEC coaches and garnered honorable mention All-SEC honors by the Associated Press.  His scoring average ranks third in Arkansas’ history for freshmen behind Scotty Thurman and Joe Johnson.

“I love being a Razorback and I see this as an opportunity to receive valuable feedback from the NBA advisory committee on my draft potential,” Young said.  “I want to make sure that I have all the information possible before I choose what is best for me and my family.  Once I am able to look over all the facts, I will have a discussion with my family and coaches and decide what is best.”

The University of Arkansas will have no further comments on the situation until Young makes his decision.
