Famutimi has until June 21 to withdraw

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Arkansas sophomore Olu Famutimi will
make himself available for the 2005 NBA Draft, school officials
said Saturday, but he has not hired an agent.

By not signing with an agent, the Flint, Mich., native has until
June 21 to remove his name from consideration for the June 28 draft
and retain his college eligibility.

"My goal is to see where I stand and work toward my dream,"
Famutimi said. "I have not hired an agent, which leaves open the
opportunity to return to the University of Arkansas."

Famutimi averaged 9.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, a .438 field goal
percentage, a .393 three-point percentage and a .673 free throw
mark during the 2004-2005 season.
