Washington sophomore guard Terrence Ross announced Sunday he will enter the NBA draft.

Ross is projected to be a mid-to-late first-round pick in the draft.

“I discussed the pros and the cons with my family and I just think this is a great step for me and it’s time for me to take my game to the next level,” Ross said about his decision.

“Being at Washington and playing for Coach (Lorenzo) Romar has been a blessing,” Ross continued. “On the court, off the court, with school and in life…it’s just been a real blessing to consider myself a Husky and get to where I am right now.”

Ross averaged 16.4 points per game this season, including 25.0 in four NIT games.

Teammate Tony Wroten Jr., also regarded as a likely first-round draft pick, has not announced his plans.

    Jeff, archdiocese of our blog. Any thoughts on the new recruit Cal signed up in football. He’s a defensive guy – and I don’t know much about him.

    Have an elegant evening.

    Dagummit, I meant archbishop. Not archdiocese. Oh well.

    In hindsight, how does U of W win the PAC 12 with two potential first round NBA draft picks, a 7 footer in the middle, with Abdul Gaddy & company by just ONE GAME? Monty would run away with the conference with a bunch such as this….
