Cyclone basketball star Royce White has announced that he will enter the NBA draft.  He does not intend a return to Iowa State next year.

During his 2:30 p.m. news conference White spoke highly of his time at Iowa State.  White told reporters that he has some hard work ahead of him to get in shape for the level of basketball he'll be playing next year.

Coach Fred Hoiberg says White was a dominant player on the court this last week and the country saw his talent.  Hoiberg says selfishly he'd love to have White return next year but he and Royce came to the conclusion that this course was best for his future.
