Turner Announces Decision to Turn Pro

In an emotional presser, we were on hand as Evan Turner stepped to the podium and announced he'll forgo his senior season in Columbus and enter the 2010 NBA Draft. We'll have video up shortly.

Clearly, Turner was conflicted because of his enjoyment of the college life and love for the program but ultimately, he made what most of view as the correct choice. Turner stated he made the decision last night and his back injury was only a minor factor.

We wish The Villain all the best as he enters the next phase of his basketball career. At this point, he has to be right behind Jerry Lucas in the pecking order of OSU greats, if not an extremely close 3rd behind Jim Jackson. Thanks for the memories.
