Decision Looming for Battle

But contrary to a published report, he has not made up his mind to return to Penn State.

On Wednesday, television station Fox 23 in Albany reported that Penn State guard Talor Battle had withdrawn his name from consideration for the 2010 NBA Draft and would return for his senior season with the Nittany Lions.

The station did so via its Web site.

But Penn State sources say the report is not accurate. Battle is scheduled to work out for the Portland Trailblazers Friday. He is expected to make a final decision on the draft sometime after the workout.

He must make his intentions clear before the May 8 deadline for pulling out of the draft.

The All-Big Ten guard declared for the draft in early April but did not hire an agent, keeping open his option to return to PSU for his senior season.
