HOUSTON -- Indiana guard Bracey Wright signed with a sports agent Wednesday, effectively ending his college career, according to a broadcast report.

Wright had announced last month that he would forgo his senior year of eligibility and declare for the NBA draft. But since he didn't initially sign with an agent, Wright preserved the chance to play another season for the Hoosiers.

Houston television station KRIV reported that Wright signed with Bob McClaren of McClaren Sports. Wright has been working out in Houston six days a week to prepare for the draft.

"It was a tough decision," Wright told the station. "I went back and forth with it a lot. There were some nights where I wasn't too sure about things; other nights I was. In the end I knew this was the right decision to make for myself."

The 6-foot-3 junior led the Big Ten in scoring, averaging 18.3 points as the Hoosiers finished 15-14 and missed the NCAA tournament for a second straight year. He ends his career 15th on Indiana's all-time scoring list with 1,498 points.
