Penn State's Battle Turning Pro
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -- Penn State junior guard Talor Battle is entering the NBA draft.

Battle said Thursday that he won't hire an agent, meaning he has until May 8 to decide to withdraw his name from consideration and return for his senior season.

Battle hopes to hold workouts for several NBA teams during the next few weeks, though he hasn't scheduled any.

The 5-foot-11 Battle averaged 18.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists, all team highs, this season for the Nittany Lions (11-20).

He is seventh in career scoring and eighth in assists at Penn State.
