Baylor Bears junior forward Ekpe Udoh, projected as a possible lottery pick in the June NBA Draft, will announce his intentions at a 5 p.m. news conference, the school announced.

Udoh, who established Baylor and Big 12 Conference single-season blocks records with 133, was the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year and was a second-team All-Big 12 selection. He averaged 13.9 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.7 blocks and 2.7 assists in 36 games. He helped lead the Bears to their best season in the modern era, with a school-record 28 wins while advancing to the Elite Eight round of the NCAA tournament. Baylor fell to eventual champion Duke, 78-71, in Houston.

The Edmond, Okla., native posted a team-best 16 double-doubles, while establishing career-best single-game and single-season marks in points, rebounding, assists and blocked shots. Udoh's 351 rebounds ranked fourth on Baylor's single-season rebounding list.

Udoh played two years at Michigan before transferring to Baylor. After sitting out last season due to NCAA transfer rules, Udoh worked hard on his offensive game and brought a new inside-outside dyanmic to the Bears.
