Ohio State freshman forward Brice Sensabaugh announced Saturday that he is entering the NBA draft.

Sensabaugh said he will keep open the option of returning to college.

"After steady thought and consideration, I am excited to announce I have decided to enter my name into the 2023 NBA Draft with the option to return to OSU," Sensabaugh wrote on Twitter and Instagram.

Sensabaugh averaged a team-best 16.3 points to go along with 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 33 games (21 starts) this season for the Buckeyes (16-19). He is just the sixth freshman in school history to score 500 or more points in a season.

Sensabaugh missed the final two games of the season after he injured a knee during the second half of a 73-69 second-round victory over Iowa in the Big Ten Conference tournament on March 9.

"I am inexplicably prideful to say that I am a Buckeye, and I say this with no uncertainty," Sensabaugh said. "To be a part of this brotherhood was a dream of mine growing up, and with this freshman year under my belt, I can say that it exceeded my expectations by a long shot."

Sensabaugh is projected to be a first-round selection in the draft.
