ESPN’s Paul Biancardi has broke the story that D’Angelo Russell has declared from the NBA Draft.
In D’Angelo’s words:
“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 also said that he will miss Columbus.
“It’s a great place, the fan base is crazy for basketball …hopefully it will open doors down the road after basketball,” he said. “The staff did a great job of challenging me from the X’s and O’s [standpoint], strengthening my body, and academically I got named as one of two players as a scholar-athlete on our team.”
