The 2012 NCAA Tournament has wrapped up and the early declarations for the upcoming NBA Draft have begun. Many standout players during the regular NCAA basketball season and the just-completed March Madness are looking to parlay their performance and national exposure into the hope of turning pro. The latest to declare for the draft is Thomas Robinson, a junior forward from tournament runners-up the Kansas Jayhawks.
According to SB Nation Kansas City, Robinson officially announced his decision at at press conference at the Allen Fieldhouse on Monday. He expressed his appreciation for the school and their basketball program and Kansas head coach Bill Self wished the young player nothing but the best.
Robinson doesn't have a preference on a pro team, which is good because he is likely to be a lottery pick and could be selected as high as No. 2 overall in this year's draft.
