Indiana's Noah Vonleh told CBSSports.com on Sunday that he will enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

"It's going to suck leaving college without an NCAA Tournament," Vonleh, a 6-foot-10 freshman, said by phone. "But I have to do what's best for me."

Vonleh averaged 11.3 points and 9.0 rebounds this season for the Hoosiers, who missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011. NBA sources have told CBSSports.com that he's guaranteed to go in the lottery, and that the top five of the draft is a possibility.

"I've heard the fourth pick to the 12th pick is wide open," Vonleh said. "[I think I'll be selected] anywhere in that range."

DraftExpress.com has Vonleh going seventh overall.

The 18-year-old forward was a 2013 McDonald's All-American.
