Florida coach Mike White said Tuesday that he expects junior center John Egbunu to put his name in for the NBA draft without an agent.

The 6-foot-11 Egbunu averaged 7.8 points and a team-high 6.6 rebounds in 24 games before suffering a season-ending torn ACL injury on Feb. 14 at Auburn.

Despite the injury, Egbunu intends to get feedback from NBA teams before deciding whether to return for his senior season.

Junior forward Devin Robinson also intends to test the NBA draft waters without an agent and is currently projected as a second-round pick.
