Jimmer Fredette Enters Name In NBA Draft

In a similar move to New Mexico's Darrington Hobson, BYU's Jimmer Fredette is entering the NBA draft but is not hiring an agent.  Fredette is expected to stay at BYU for his senior year, but by not hiring an agent he can go through the draft process and still return to school if he withdraws by May 8th:

By making himself eligible for the draft, Fredette can be invited to pre-draft camps designed to evaluate potential draft choices and participate in workouts with NBA teams. College underclassmen have until Sunday, April 25, to declare for the draft. Student-athletes who have not signed with an agent can return to college by withdrawing from the draft by May 8.

Fredette in some mock drafts are not even expected to be drafted or a late second round pick.  The reason to go through this is to see how they can stack up against other potential NBA draftees.  Expect Jimmer to be back at BYU next year terrorizing the league.
