Trevor Thompson has officially decided to turn pro. The former Ohio State center signed with an agent, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.
By doing this, Thompson will void his final season of collegiate eligibility.
Thompson, who transferred from Virginia Tech after his freshman year, averaged 10.6 points, 9.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 23 minutes per game with the Buckeyes during the 2016-17 season. The Indianapolis native also recorded 11 double-doubles this past winter while playing all 32 games.
Following his sophomore year, Thompson (7-0, 250) took advantage of the NCAA rule that allows underclassmen to declare for the NBA draft and work out while maintaining their collegiate eligibility should they decide to return, so long as they do not hire an agent.
Some of Foucher's current clients in the NBA include Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The 2017 NBA draft is June 22.
