As a sophomore at Ohio State, Jared Sullinger announced at a press conference on April 4, 2012 that he will be leaving school to enter the 2012 NBA Draft. In what would be his final year at Ohio State, Sullinger led the Buckeyes to a 31-8 overall record (13-5 Big Ten). Sullinger averaged 17.5 points and 9.3 rebounds per game during the 2011-12 season. The Buckeyes advanced to the 'Final Four' of the 2012 NCAA tournament, where the team lost to the Kansas Jayhawks. Five days after the loss, the two-time AP All-American declared he was entering the 2012 draft, where he is widely expected among the top picks.
