COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -Ohio State freshman center Kosta Koufos will declare for the NBA draft but will not immediately sign with an agent, the school said Monday.
By not signing with an agent, the 7-foot Koufos leaves open the possibility of returning to the Buckeyes next season, Ohio State spokesman Dan Wallenberg said in a statement.
Koufos averaged 14.4 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Buckeyes last season and had 22 points and nine rebounds in Ohio State's win over Massachusetts in the NIT championship game.
The decision by Koufos to declare for the draft was reported earlier Monday by FoxSports.com and The Canton Repository.
