Jared Sullinger Has Been Red Flagged By Doctors

Could he drop out of the first round?

ESPN is reporting that Jared Sullinger, a two-time All-American for the Ohio State Buckeyes, has been red flagged by NBA league doctors due to an apparent back injury that they believe may shorten his career. Sullinger’s back flared up this past fall, causing him to miss numerous games early in the season.

Sullinger led the Buckeyes to the Final Four this year, and was projected to be a top-ten pick in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft. It’ll be interesting to see how far (if at all) Sullinger falls down the draft board.
