Ohio State freshman big man Jared Sullinger said he will return to Ohio State, according to Dana O’Neil of ESPN.com.
On one hand, I was never a big fan of Sullinger’s NBA prospects. He’s relatively athletic and undersized – a difficult combination to overcome.
On the other hand, this makes a weak draft even weaker. Although I didn’t want the Pistons to draft him, Sullinger won’t go to a team ahead of them, which would have allowed another player to slip to Detroit.
On yet another hand (clearly, this requires superhuman extremities to explain), Ohio State just lost an emotional game to Kentucky, and Sullinger has plenty of time to change his mind.
