Texas freshmen Jarrett Allen and Andrew Jones were both invited to the upcoming NBA Draft scouting combine, according to a school spokesman.
Allen has already signed with an agent, thereby forfeiting his remaining eligibility. However, Jones still has not signed with anyone yet and could still return to UT next season.
NBA officials have yet to release the official list of invitees. But both Longhorns have been mentioned in various NBA mock drafts. Allen is projected as a lottery pick. Jones could be a second-round choice or not be drafted at all.
The NBA Draft combine is May 11-12 in Chicago.
