Ohio State's E.J. Liddell addresses future plans
E.J. Liddell isn’t quite ready to make a decision just yet.
On Wednesday, the Ohio State forward met with reporters and was asked about his future plans. The sophomore says, for right now, his main focus is getting his “life back to normal” before making any decision.
Specifically, Liddell has not made a decision yet on whether or not to test the NBA Draft waters. With the NCAA’s rules, he would be eligible to enter his name into the draft but withdraw before the deadline and return to Ohio State.
E.J. Liddell says he hasn't made a decision on if he'll go through the NBA draft process or not yet. Just focused on getting his life back to normal – or getting back to his video games, he says.
