FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ Joe Johnson, who led Arkansas in scoring and rebounding as a sophomore last season, announced Thursday he will enter the National Basketball Association draft.

``At this time, I merely want to gather information prior to making a final decision,″ Johnson said. ``I have had a great experience so far at the University of Arkansas and simply feel that it is in my best interest to gather as much information as I can about my future.″

Johnson won’t sign with an agent so he would be able to withdraw his name until June 20 without losing his college eligibility.

The 6-foot-8 swingman averaged 14.2 points and 6.4 rebounds and was an All-Southeastern Conference selection last season.
