D’Angelo Russell Makes His Decision

If you had hoped that D’Angelo was going to pull a Sullinger and return to OSU for a second year I hate to be the one to disappoint you but it is not happening. D Russell announced his plans via ESPN….

Ohio State freshman D’Angelo Russell has decided to go pro, declaring for the NBA draft Wednesday.

“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 talked about his love of being a Buckeye….

Russell said he will miss Ohio State and expressed gratitude for his time in 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.”

Go forth Mr. Russell and make all of Buckeye Nation proud as you dominate the NBA for many years to come.
