Former Hawk Tyler Smith Going Pro

Tennessee forward Tyler Smith will make himself eligible for the June 25 NBA draft.

A team spokesman says Smith will not hire an agent which leaves open the option for him to return for his senior season with the Volunteers.

The Pulaski native led the team this season with 17.4 points per game and averaged 5.8 rebounds per game. He was named to The Associated Press All-SEC team.

Smith, who played at Iowa as a freshman, has averaged 15.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in his two seasons at Tennessee and hasn't missed a game.
