— Multiple media outlets reported Monday that North Carolina State sophomore forward TJ Warren will head to the NBA Draft. However, Warren told WRAL late Monday that he remains undecided and is focused on finishing school. He even took to Twitter to say “Undecided” in a post just before 3 p.m.

After leading the pack to an NCAA tournament appearance and winning the ACC Player of the Year honor, many predict Warren, a 6-foot-8 forward, would be a first round pick.

Warren averaged a league-best 24.9 points per game and added 7.1 rebounds as the Wolfpack lost to No. 5 seed St. Louis in the Round of 64.

College players have until April 27 to declare for the NBA Draft, which is held on June 26.

    Being selfish, I wish he would stay 1 more year, but I would not blame him in the least for jumping to the NBA. Great opportunity, but I would still like to watch him for another year at State.

    Warren has unfinished business at State. I know in his heart he probably feels there is more to be done in his college basketball career. His draft stock will only get better next year, meaning more $ than if he went now. But why suffer all the freshman bumps and bruises this year, and not experience the fruitage and rewards of a MUCH more experienced team next year with his State brothers. Warren needs to see this through at least one more year. NBA ain't going anywhere.

    He would be smart to get his college degree and experience the college life. He cannot get those years back.

    Dang who let the cat out of the bag...must have been the cat burgler

    He'd need to be National POY to improve his draft stock next season. The longer he stays, the more the scouts will pick apart his game.

    I can't imagine him staying another year, but if he does, what a year that could be.

    I agree that Warren may have unfinished business at State, but he's a sophomore, not a freshman. He came off the bench last year. What a gem State had, hidden behind CJ, Brown, Scott Wood, etc. Glad he got a chance to shine this year, but I doubt he comes back. Whatever he decides, it will be the best decision for him.

    As a State fan, if he's a guaranteed lottery pick according t the scouts, take the NBA money and run. You can always come back and finish your education. That being said, I wouldn't complain if he decided to stay another year.
