After winning the Big Ten and playing in the NCAA Tournament as a 1-seed, Indiana's Victor Oladipo is headed to the NBA, according to Jeff Goodman of CBS. The announcement is expected to be made official Tuesday afternoon in a press conference held with Oladipo's coach, Tom Crean. Despite skipping out on his senior year of eligibility, the Upper Marlboro, Md. native will graduate in May.
ESPN's Chad Ford has Oladipo as a lottery pick at No. 6 in his overall rankings. With a draft class full of question marks, the talented Hoosier decided 2013 was the year he could hover around the top of NBA teams' draft boards.
A raw talent entering college in 2010, Oladipo turned a corner this season, raising his shooting averages across the board. He hit nearly 60 percent of his shots from the floor on his way to 13.6 points per game. The 6'5 shooting guard also managed to improve his range, more than doubling his percentage from three to 44% this past season. But his biggest strength may be on the defensive side. Oladipo has elite speed and quickness on the perimeter and can get his hands on the ball and put it in the basket before opposing players know what hit them.
