COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) D'Angelo Russell is moving on from Ohio State after one season.
The point guard and first-team All-America is making himself available for the NBA draft, he told ESPN.com on Wednesday (http://es.pn/1IK1enO).
"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," Russell said. "At the same time I wanted to pursue my dream of playing in the NBA. I know what I am capable of and the sky's the limit with effort. I know I have a lot to work on."
