Despite a report to the contrary, Ohio State junior forward LaQuinton Ross says he has not yet decided if he will return to Columbus for his senior year.

Jeff Goodman reported Monday that sources told ESPN Ross will declare for the NBA Draft.

Ross himself denied, via Twitter, that he had come to a decision.

Ross, who averaged 15.2 points and 5.9 rebounds this season, is on the border of being a first-round pick, according to some pundits.

Last season, top scorer Deshaun Thomas decided to forego his senior season at Ohio State for the draft. He was selected in the second round by the Spurs but is now playing overseas in France.
