Kelsey Mitchell's career at Ohio State is over, but her WNBA career is just about to start. 

Mitchell, a projected top-five pick, ended her career in Columbus as Ohio State's and the Big Ten's all-time leading scorer and led the Buckeyes to a pair of Sweet 16's in her four year career, and is set to attend the WNBA Draft in New York on April 12. 

Mitchell had the opportunity to declare for the WNBA Draft after last season, but chose to come back for her senior campaign as a Buckeye. 

The draft is set to be held at Nike's New York headquarters at 7 p.m., with the first round being televised on ESPN2. Last season, former Buckeye Shayla Cooper was selected with the first pick of the second round by the Connecticut Sun. 

Mitchell's Ohio State teammates Stephanie Mavunga and Linnae Harper are also candidates to be selected at some point during the three-round draft.
