All-American Center DeJuan Blair of Pittsburgh has joined the list of college players to submit his name for this June's NBA draft.


Blair has not yet hired an agent, leaving the possibility that he could return for his junior season. He is currently projected as a mid-first-round pick.


If he doesn't hire an agent, Blair would have until June 15 to withdraw his name from the June 25 draft.
