NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Vanderbilt junior center A.J. Ogilvy will skip his final season and enter the NBA Draft.

The Commodores announced Thursday that the 6-foot-11 Sydney, Australia native will also hire an agent in advance of the June 24 draft, ending his collegiate eligibility.

Coach Kevin Stallings says he appreciates everything Ogilvy has done in helping lead Vanderbilt to two NCAA tournament bids in the past three years.

Ogilvy was an All-Southeastern Conference honorable mention this season and averaged 15.3 points and 6.7 rebounds per game in his three-year career. He is the Commodores' all-time leader in free throws made with 471 and blocks per game with 1.51.
