The 7-foot, 260-pound center averaged 13.4 points and 8.3
rebounds last season, helping Bradley to the NCAA Tournament round
of 16 for the first time since 1955.
O'Bryant has until June 18 to pull his name out of the draft,
which will be held June 28. He said he would return to Bradley only
if he suffered an injury or wasn't pleased with his draft
projection by the deadline.
O'Bryant, the Missouri Valley Conference's defensive player of
the year, said Saturday he may enroll in the IMG basketball academy
in Sarasota, Fla., a training facility for prospective draftees to
improve their stock.
He also might participate in private workouts for NBA teams and
hopes to play in the pre-draft camp June 6-12 in Orlando.
O'Bryant averaged 2.9 blocked shots a game last season to lead
the conference. His 147 blocks in two seasons rank third on
Bradley's all-time list and tenth in conference history.
