Sullinger Leaving OSU, Going Pro
Jared Sullinger is turning in his Ohio State basketball jersey for a chance at the NBA.
The two-time All American forward announced yesterday heâ€™s forgoing his final two years at OSU to turn professional.
“It was a lot,” Sullinger says. “I had a talk with coach (Thad) Matta and he pretty much told me ‘do what’s best for me.’ I thought the best decision for me was to go to the NBA.”
Matta says he’s comfortable with the sophomoreâ€™s decision.

Sullinger, a Columbus native who starred at Northland High School, is expected to be a first-round draft pick in the NBA Draft in June.
