LEXINGTON, Va. -- Division I scoring leader Reggie Williams plans to skip his senior season at Virginia Military Institute and enter the NBA draft.

Williams, a 6-foot-5 forward who averaged 28.1 points, said Tuesday he will not hire an agent. He will have until June 18 to withdraw his name if he hopes to return to the Keydets. The NBA draft is June 28 in New York.

"I felt that I had a successful season and I would like to explore my options at the next level," said Williams, adding he intends to return to VMI to get his degree.

Williams set Big South Conference and VMI records for points this season. He had four games of 40 or more points and 15 games of 30 or more points. Williams is third in VMI history with 1,861 points.
