Travis Leslie nearing a decision

Georgia basketball star Travis Leslie is close to a decision on whether to enter his name in the NBA draft, and may have made it already.

The Georgia junior was due to speak to head coach Mark Fox on Monday, according to Leslie's high school coach, who added that Leslie was tentatively planning an announcement for Wednesday.

Phil McCrary, who coached Leslie at Columbia High School, said he didn’t know which way Leslie was leaning.

“Travis is a very mature person. He kept everything in consideration,” McCrary said. “He’s not one of those kids who always rushes into a decision. He’s one of those kids that evaluates what’s best for himself and what’s the best decision he can make.”

Leslie, a 6-foot-4 swingman, is rated the 30th-best prospect in the nation, according to He averaged 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this year for Georgia, which got its first at-large NCAA berth in nine years.

Georgia junior forward Trey Thompkins, the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, was also considering whether to enter his name in the draft.

Players have until April 24 to enter the draft, and if they don’t sign with an agent, they can withdraw by May 8 to retain their NCAA eligibility.
