It's been a long time in the making, but LSU forward Johnny O'Bryant is finally ready to play professional basketball.

The 6-foot-9, 256-pound junior forward announced his intentions to forego his senior season and enter the 2014 NBA Draft at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.

O'Bryant, a native of Cleveland, Miss., came to LSU a McDonald's All-American in the Class of 2011. Two of his AAU teammates with the Jackson Tigers, Jalen Courtney and Andre Stringer, also made their ways to TigerTown.

Once on campus O'Bryant turned in a productive career in purple and gold. He averaged 8.5 points and 6.7 rebounds as a freshman before submitting two All-SEC seasons in his sophomore and junior campaigns.

This past season O'Bryant averaged 15.4 points and 7.7 rebounds while shooting a career-best 49.6% from the field.
