Rutgers guard Corey Sanders to enter NBA Draft

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers sophomore guard Corey Sanders is entering the NBA draft.

In making the announcement Thursday, the university said Sanders will not sign with an agent.

Sanders will be able to attend workouts scheduled by NBA teams and will be eligible for invitation to the league's combine next month. Players have until 10 days after the combine to remain in the draft or return to school, as long as they don't sign with an agent.

Sanders started 31 of 33 games this season, averaging 12.8 points and 3.2 rebounds.

Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell said Sanders needs to make an informed decision on his future.

''My dream has always been to play in the NBA,'' Sanders said. ''I look forward to determining where I am in that journey.''
