Thomas Robinson Reportedly Set To Leave for NBA

After a stellar junior season that saw him average 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds a game for Kansas, Thomas Robinson is reportedly set to enter the NBA draft, according to his head coach Bill Self.

Robinson is expected to officially announce that he will enter the draft at an 11:30 a.m. news conference in Allen Fieldhouse on Monday.

His final season as a Jayhawk was full of runner-up performances. Robinson finished second to Kentucky's Anthony Davis in both Wooden Award and Associated Press player of the year voting, and his team lost to Davis' in the national title game.

But Robinson also took some honors home during a memorable season. He was a consensus first-team All-American and led the Jayhawks to an eighth consecutive Big 12 title.

He is expected to be selected within the first five picks of June's NBA draft.
