Oglesby Leaving the NCAA for Europe
Second underclassman leaves for Europe.
Clemson guard Terrence Oglesby will be signing with an agent and heading over to Europe to play professional basketball, foregoing his final two seasons of eligibility with the Tigers. Clemson head coach Oliver Purnell confirmed it to ESPN yesterday. Oglesby, who did not declare for this year’s NBA Draft, was the Tigers’ third leading scorer averaging 13.2 points per game this past season. “It’s true that Terrence is leaving Clemson and the expectation that he’s signing with someone in Europe,” Purnell told ESPN. “It hasn’t been finalized yet or he hasn’t gotten an agent. But he felt there were opportunities out there for him in either Spain or Italy.” Just a few days ago, it was reported that Florida’s Nick Calathes would withdraw his name from the NBA Draft to sign with Greek powerhouse Panathinaikos. Last summer we saw a mass exodus of players leaving the NBA to play ball in Europe, will it be the NCAA’s turn this summer?
