“I am officially going to go the NBA,” said Sullinger, according to the university’s website. “I just want to thank the Ohio State University for everything they’ve done for me.”
The 6-foot-9-inch, 265-pound Sullinger was an All-American in both his seasons as a Buckeye and led the team in both scoring and rebounding each of the last two seasons.
Ohio State won at least a share of the Big Ten regular season championship the last two seasons as the Buckeyes posted a 65–11 mark during that time. This past season Sullinger led the Buckeyes to their first Final Four appearance since 2007, bowing to Kansas in the national semifinals.
Sullinger, a power forward, is widely expected to be taken within the first 15 picks of the NBA draft.
