Indiana’s Victor Oladipo to Enter Name in NBA Draft
Indiana’s Victor Oladipo will announce he is leaving for the NBA at 4 pm today, sources told CBSSports. Will graduate in 3 years in May.

Oladipo exploded in 2012-2013 after a solid sophomore season the year before. The junior guard showed signs of brilliance throughout, and looked like a multi-tool threat.
He is one of the best young prospects in the 2013 draft, and is one of two Indiana players that is expected to enter their names, the other player being sophomore big man Cody Zeller.
While Oladipo’s stock exploded through the roof this season, Zeller’s dropped off a bit from a year ago, but both could potentially be lottery picks.
Indiana and head coach Tom Crean will be searching for replacements for the athletically-gifted guard and hoping that next season won’t be as much of a rebuilding year that the coach saw in his first couple of seasons at Indiana. The Hoosiers are also losing senior point guard Jordan Hulls and senior forward Christian Warford, leaving Indiana a program on the mend.
Oladipo is expected to make his decision today and it is the correct one. If he stayed, he would likely struggle to keep Indiana competitive with all of the other talents leaving the program.
