Johnny O’Bryant will announce that he is entering the NBA Draft, his former high school coach told a TV station in Greenville.

The school has reportedly set up a press conference for 2:00 p.m. today.

O’Bryant averaged 15.4 points and 7.7 boards as a junior this past season, but he’s not a sure-fire first round draft pick. There’s not even a guarantee that he’ll be picked, period. He’s talented, but there have been question marks about his work ethic and his conditioning. That’s not what you want to hear about a guy projected to end up somewhere in the mid-to-late second round.

LSU will now wait to hear the decisions of Jordan Mickey and Jarell Martin.
