    Ohio State junior guard Duane Washington Jr. has declared for the 2021 NBA Draft and will maintain his college eligibility, he announced Friday via Twitter.

    “After discussions with my family, Coach [Chris] Holtmann, and our coaching staff, I feel it’s in my best interest to take advantage of this opportunity to potentially make my dream come true,” Washington said in a statement Friday. “My focus is fully on the process and taking the necessary steps to become an NBA player. With that being said…I will be entering the 2021 NBA Draft!”

    Washington led Ohio State in scoring during the 2020-21 season, averaging 16.4 points on 41 percent from the field and 37.4 percent from three-point range.

    He had two 30-point performances this season, while also averaging 23 points in four games during the Big Ten Tournament.

    Washington joins E.J. Liddell as the second Ohio State player to test the NBA Draft waters this offseason.
