Victor Rudd declares for NBA Draft

TAMPA — One day after USF's memorable NCAA Tournament run ended, sophomore forward Victor Rudd announced he was submitting his name for consideration for early entry to the NBA draft, to "test the waters." He will not immediately hire an agent, leaving open the possibility of returning.

"After meeting with my family, I have decided to forgo what would be my junior year at South Florida University and enter my name into the 2012 NBA Draft," Rudd was quoted as saying in an e-mail sent to the Tampa Bay Times just after 8 p.m. Monday.

Rudd, a 6-foot-7 wing who can hit 3-pointers and highlight-reel dunks, was USF's second-leading scorer at 9.2 points per game. He was their most consistent scorer in the postseason, scoring at least 13 in his final five games.

USF confirmed late Monday that Rudd was considering the NBA. Coach Stan Heath said in the school's release that USF will support and assist Rudd.

Rudd, who has played one season for the Bulls after transferring from Arizona State, thanked each of his coaches by name in the email, as well as his teammates.

"I had a blast and I am sorry we came up short," Rudd said in the email.

Then 90 minutes later, he addressed the matter in USF's release: "I want to test the waters and see how I might do in the draft, without hiring an agent," he said. "The USF staff has been very supportive in this process."

Yeah he has no chance of

Yeah he has no chance of getting picked this year. But, he does have upside and is smart to not hire and agent. I'd be surprised if he didn't return. He's got size, athleticism and a nice shot.
