Iowa State's Royce White To Enter 2012 NBA Draft, According To Report

Royce White, the Iowa State forward who led the Cyclones past defending national champion UConn in the NCAA Tournament and played well against a stacked Kentucky team, will enter the 2012 NBA Draft, reports Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports.

White has just one collegiate season under his belt, as he didn't play as a freshman at Minnesota in 2009-10 and sat out the 2010-11 season. He averaged 13 points, 9 rebounds and 5 assists for Iowa State this season, and will turn 21 years old in April, putting him at an age on par with prospects who have had three years of collegiate experience.

Goodman reports that NBA scouts have pegged White for the late first-round after his strong tournament production. DraftExpress lists White even higher, as the No. 20 draft-eligible prospect in the nation.
