Washington guard Terrence Ross, who averaged 25 points in four games as the Huskies reached the semifinals of the NIT, announced he will enter the NBA draft.
By April 29, at the latest, freshman guard Tony Wroten Jr., will make his decision public.
"I discussed the pros and the cons with my family and I just think this is a great step for me and it's time for me to take my game to the next level," Ross said of his decision. "Being at Washington and playing for Coach (Lorenzo) Romar has been a blessing,"
Senior forward Darnell Gant is the only other player on his way out for Washington, but the status of Ross and Wroten -- who combined to average more than 32 points -- has a significant impact on the program.
Romar said he wishes Ross the best.
"He was refreshing to coach because of his humility and team-first attitude," Romar said. "We wish him well and anticipate that he will have an excellent NBA career."
Wroten has until April 10 to decide, according to the NCAA's deadline for underclassmen to announce their plans. The reality is, he can announce he will stay in school and still change his mind by the NBA's April 29 deadline.
