Wall makes it official, is headed to the NBA

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky point guard John Wall says he's
thankful for his time with the Wildcats and is ready to head to the
NBA.
The freshman star said Thursday he considered returning to
school as a sophomore but the risk of injury outweighed the reward
of vying for an NCAA championship.
Wall was part of a stellar freshman class that helped Kentucky
to a 35-3 record and a Southeastern Conference championship.
Kentucky fell to West Virginia in the regional finals of the NCAA
tournament.
Wall has yet to hire an agent, though the process should be
completed soon. The SEC Player of the Year is expected to be among
the first players drafted, a prospect that he calls "a dream come
true."
Wall is one of five Kentucky underclassmen who have declared for
the NBA Draft.
