Oklahoma forward Blake Griffin has given up his final two years of eligibility and will enter the NBA draft after a sophomore season that ended with him being recognized as college basketball's top player.
Griffin announced his decision Tuesday at a campus news conference alongside coach Jeff Capel, saying it was time for him to take his game to the next level. He says he will look back on his days at Oklahoma as a special time.
Griffin helped the Sooners win 30 games in a season for only the fifth time in school history, shattering the school records for double-doubles and rebounds along the way.
