Washington Guard Terrence Ross to Enter NBA Draft

Sophomore guard Terrence Ross, who averaged a team-high 16.4 points this season and led the University of Washington to the Pac-12 regular season title and NIT semifinals, has decided to enter the NBA Draft. ESPN has the details: “‘I think I’m ready for this,’ Ross said Sunday. ‘I’ve matured in the last two years just being in college. I’ve got a good supporting group around me with my family and close friends so I think I’m ready for this.’ Ross conferred with his family before making the decision to turn pro. He said they had a family meeting to make sure Ross was thinking of every possible angle before making his decision. ‘My family was really supportive,’ Ross said. Ross averaged 25 points in four games in the NIT before a 68-67 overtime loss to Minnesota ended the Huskies’ season. He still has time to pull his name out of the draft, but he sounded as if he had made his choice. ‘I’m all in right now,’ he said. ‘I don’t think there’s anything that can make me change my decision. I’ve thought about this really hard, took a lot of time, sat down with my family, talked to them about it so I’ve made my decision and I’m not going to change it.’ Washington said on its men’s basketball Twitter feed that Ross plans to hire an agent.”

    A 6’6 productive guard. Wonder if he’d fall to my Bulls.

    that’s just the thing. it was the NIT. first team to win their conference and not make it to the NCAA Tournament.. he is good though…

  • Top$helf

    Alot of guys checkout when they don’t make the tournament so for him to be locked in for the NIT shows a certain level of pride and maturity

  • IDOT

    he got all the tools needed to be a star.. i hope he’ll pan out.. could be a steal around the 16-20 range

  • RunNGun

    I agree… that 16-20 range is where he’d likely fall. That’s right up there with other SG prospects such as Austin Rivers and Dion Waiters.
