Report: Rutgers forward Wally Judge to enter the NBA Draft (UPDATED: Actually he’s not)

UPDATED 12:32 p.m.: According to Judge, he’s actually going to be returning to school:

——————————————–

It turns out that a head coach isn’t the only ones leaving Rutgers this offseason.

Wally Judge will be entering his name into the NBA Draft, according to a report. Judge is a 6-foot-10 forward and a former McDonald’s All-American. He spent his first two season at Kansas State, where he played for Frank Martin, before transferring out of the program and heading to Rutgers.

The phrase “entering the NBA Draft” is kind of misleading. Judge is ranked the 65th best prospect by Draft Express in the junior class. He’s not exactly a lottery pick, but he does have some potential. He’s long and he’s athletic, but it’s risky to pick a long and athletic player that hasn’t proven the ability to produce despite spending four years in college. Judge averaged 7.1 points and 5.4 boards as a redshirt junior at Rutgers last season.
