Terrence Ross of the Washington Huskies has been projected as a first round draft pick in many spots. His 2011-12 campaign definitely provided solid support there.
Ross had a solid sophomore season, shooting 51.8% from the field and 37.1% from three point range. He also managed to become a decent shot blocker while holding onto the basketball (he didn't turnover the basketball that much). At 6'6", 195, he's at the perfect position to become a solid two guard in the league.
Ross thinks so himself, and is ready to make the leap Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports has more.
Ross, a 6-foot-6 sophomore from Portland, plans to hire an agent, meaning he cannot withdraw and return to the Huskies.
"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 in a statement. "It's just been a real blessing to consider myself a Husky and get to where I am right now."
The Huskies have a great chance to contend for the Pac-12 title next season, but with no Ross it muddles the picture a bit. Ross's departure means that Washington will be hoping that Tony Wroten does decide to come back for the draft.
