Thomas departs for NBA

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Deshaun Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer this season, has decided to forego his senior season and enter the NBA Draft, the Department of Athletics announced this afternoon.

The Fort Wayne native finished his career No. 9 in all-time scoring at Ohio State with 1,630 points and led the Big Ten with 19.8 points per game during the 2012-13 season

“My three years at Ohio State have been the best years of my life. I have grown tremendously as an individual and as a basketball player.  I intend to return to finish my degree, but I believe that now is the best opportunity to pursue my dream and begin my career as a professional basketball player,” Thomas said.

Thomas started the final 76 games of 113 in a Buckeyes uniform.

“To see Deshaun grow into the man he has become has been amazing. His accomplishments on the floor speak for themselves but I am just as proud of him and what he has done off the floor.  We recruited him offering the opportunity to grow as a person and player and that is exactly what happened,” head coach Thad Matta said.

Thomas plans to finish the spring semester while splitting time between Columbus and Indianapolis preparing for the draft.
