WACO (AP) - Baylor sophomore center Isaiah Austin has decided to forgo the remainder of his collegiate eligibility to enter the NBA draft.

The 7-foot-1 Austin, who has a prosthetic right eye, averaged 12.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in his 73 games the past two seasons with the Bears.

Bears coach Scott Drew made the announcement Tuesday, five days before the early entry deadline and just more than a month after Baylor went the NCAA Sweet 16.

Austin might have been a first-round NBA pick after his freshman season last summer, but couldn’t do pre-draft workouts because of a torn labrum in his shoulder.

NBA scouts at Baylor games this season said they already knew about Austin’s eye issue before the player revealed his blindness publicly in January.
