Ohio State junior forward LaQuinton Ross will declare for the NBA draft, according to ESPN.

Ross averaged 15.2 points and 5.9 rebounds for the Buckeyes this season.

According to the report, Ross met with Buckeyes coach Thad Matta on Monday afternoon to inform him of his decision.

Ohio State, a No. 6 seed in the NCAA tournament, exited early after falling to No. 11 seed Dayton.

Some consider Ross a possible late first-round draft pick. Last year, Ohio State’s Deshaun Thomas left after his junior season and was selected in the second round.
