While the April 25th deadline has been accurately thrown about as the definitive deadline for entering the NBA Draft (and thus Greg Monroe's decision), I came across an interesting piece of news while reading about Evan Turner today:
Because he declared for the NBA draft before an April 12 deadline, his departure will not lead to Ohio State receiving an Academic Progress Rate penalty. The basketball program was penalized after the late withdrawals of Greg Oden (2007) and Kosta Koufos (2008).
Could this mean that JTIII and the athletic department have told Greg that April 12th is his deadline so that our APR doesn't get nailed? Mind you, this is pure, unadulterated, slightly delusional speculation, but I'm all for moving this decision up by two weeks. I can't take the agony anymore--every time I log on to this website, butterflies fill my stomach and I pee my pants a little bit in hopes of seeing the announcement. Not so sanitary, especially in a 90-degree dorm room that has a broken air conditioner.
