Ohio State freshman guard D'Angelo Russell is one of the most talented players in the nation, and should he declare for the NBA Draft this year, he'd be expected to be taken early in the first round. But whether or not he's actually planning on turning professional before June, he isn't ready to announce such a decision.
Sunday night, RealGM's Shams Charania reported on Twitter that Russell is planning on declaring for the draft within two days, and that the star guard was just deciding upon an agency. Within the hour, Russell took to Twitter to imply that the report was "false."

It's hard to see Russell returning, given how highly he's regarded by NBA scouts. But nothing is official until we hear from the player himself.
Russell averaged 19. 3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists this past year with the Buckeyes.
