— North Carolina State University sophomore forward T.J. Warren announced Tuesday that he will forgo his remaining college eligibility and enter the 2014 NBA Draft. 

Warren, the ACC Player of the Year in 2013-14, averaged 24.9 points per game and shot 52.5 percent for the Wolfpack. He set school records for points in a single season (871) and games with 20 or more points in a season (31). 

"I would like to thank my coaches and teammates at N.C. State for allowing me to compete for this great university. It's been a fun ride the last few years," Warren said in a statement. "I've had some great experiences, and now I feel I'm ready to play at the next level. Playing in the NBA has been a lifelong dream of mine, and playing at N.C.State has prepared me well to achieve my dream."

N.C. State head coach Mark Gottfried said in a statement that he is proud of Warren's development. 

"He has matured and become a special player to coach. I truly believe he was the best offensive player in the nation this year, and although he is a great scorer, his rebounding and defensive improvement are often underappreciated," he said. "I am excited for T.J. and want the very best for him. I believe in him and will miss having him in our program."

The NBA Draft will be held June 26 in New York City.

    College basketball has become nothing but an NBA type game, with players teetering on the edge of being NBAers spending a little time in college in order to put high school behind them. They come in, stay a year or two in training, and off to the NBA it is. This is taking the spirit out of the collegiate athletics, and making men's NCAA basketball look like NBA stuff. That is why I've given up the men's game, and starting watching the girls game. It is a lot more fun to watch (exception being UCONN, which doesn't compare to everyone else). Their game is a lot more entertaining than this men's game we have now, and it looks more like a basketball game. The men's game is no more than a bunch of tall guys slamming the ball through the rim. How much talent does that take? Not very much, just physical ability.

    "It's been a fun ride the last few years," Who needs a college education when you can bounce a ball? These clowns make me sick. What a waste of college.

    LOL

    this poor pansy doesn't grasp that when you're the LONE scoring option, teams gameplan to STOP you.... alas, TJ simply could NOT be stopped.

    Also, if State was so "awful".... WHY were they still playing on Saturday of the ACC tourney, whilst your pansies were home sucking their pansy thumbs??? #Oops #FactSlappedBySAC

    I don't really see what the problem is. If this was your kid, and let's say he was an academic scholarship student. Because of his abilities a company came along and offered to pay him several million dollars guaranteed over the next 4 years. All he has to do is leave school, come and work for them with the chance to earn even more after that 4 years. Would you tell him to stay in school and hope the opportunity is still there in a couple more years? If you would, then I would hope he would ignore you. If he wants and needs to finish his education later, the opportunity for that will still be available. But, the opportunity to secure his financial future may never come again.

    Let me guess you think lynching is a good option in this case

    LOL - nice numerical order there - Hansbrough had a higher point ave - put him up there higher. And maybe if everyone else on State wasn't so horrible, Warren would have gotten more recognition. All the rest of those people on that list played on great TEAMS. Part of the reason Warren scored so many points was because there wasn't any consistent scoring options on State (i.e. they were horrible besides him)...

    One word- squandered! You could have become maybe the best player ever at NC State and the nation...and have a college degree. One day you kids will learn that money cannot buy everything...especially the things that matter. Hope you will repay your scholarship to the taxpayers of NC after you make millions.
