Tony Wroten declares for the NBA Draft


Just days after Terrence Ross announced he will leave school early for the NBA draft; Tony Wroten surprised no one when he made the same decision. He too will leave the Washington Huskies early to fulfill a lifelong dream to play in the NBA after just one season with the Huskies.

“I have been talking with my friends and family and I just felt like this was the right time,” Wroten said of his decision, “I love the University of Washington, but I just feel that it’s best for me to make the jump.”

There have been plenty of ups and downs along the way for Wroten who became a polarizing figure in just one year at Washington. Some loved him and others hated him, but there’s no denying that he’s one of the most talented players to ever come through Montlake.

With Ross and Wroten both leaving early for the draft, the Huskies are left looking to next year with plenty of question marks. They still have talent, but losing two likely first round picks could be devastating.

We’ll have more about this decision soon and will keep our eye on where Wroten could end up going in the NBA draft. We’ll also take a look at how the Huskies could fair now that they’ve lost two incredibly talented guards.
