By Jeff Goodman | College Basketball Insider

Royce White is NBA-bound.

Sources close to White told CBSSports.com that Iowa State's versatile 6-foot-7, 270-pound forward has signed with an agent.

An official announcement is expected on Wednesday.

White, who didn't play his freshman season at Minnesota due to legal issues and sat out in 2010-11 after transferring to Iowa State, proved he was one of the most multidimensional players in the country.

White averaged 13.4 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists this past season and was terrific in the Cyclones' loss to Kentucky in the NCAA tournament this past weekend. He finished with 23 points, grabbed nine rebounds and had four assists in the 87-71 loss.

White, according to several NBA executives, has likely worked his way into the first round of June's NBA Draft.
