Ohio State Freshman Guard D’Angelo Russell Declares For The NBA Draft


Ohio State freshman star D’Angelo Russell announced his intention to forgo his remaining collegiate eligibility and enter the 2015 NBA draft.

Russell’s announcement was reported by ESPN’s Paul Biancardi:

“This was a hard decision because I knew I could come back and play with my teammates who I love and to be coached by Coach Thad Matta again would have been awesome, but at the same time I wanted to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA,” Russell told ESPN.com on Wednesday. “I know what I am capable of and the sky’s the limit with effort. I know I have a lot to work on.”

Russell was outstanding as a freshman averaging 19 points, nearly six rebounds and five assists while playing 34 minutes per contest.
