PROVIDENCE, R.I. - It was announced today (April 9) that Providence College freshman guard Ricky Ledo (Providence, R.I.) will forego his four years of collegiate eligibility and enter the 2013 NBA Draft.
"I want to thank Providence College for the opportunity to be a Friar," Ledo said. "As much as I wanted to play for the Friars and help the team win a BIG EAST championship, I felt I could not pass up this opportunity to enter the NBA Draft now. I had a great experience this season and will always remember the great atmosphere for our games at the Dunkin' Donuts Center. I appreciate all the support from the College, the fans, my teammates and the coaching staff, especially Coach Cooley. I love my teammates and I will always be a Friar."
In September, the NCAA ruled that Ledo could not compete in games for the Friars in 2012-13. Ledo did practice and workout with the squad this season.
"We want to wish Ricky all the best and thank him for his efforts this season," Providence College Head Coach Ed Cooley said. "Ricky is one of the most talented players that I have had the opportunity to coach. I am sure he will enjoy a very productive professional career. He will always be a member of the Friar family."
