Ohio State's William Buford, Jared Sullinger Officially Invited To NBA Combine

On Tuesday afternoon, the NBA officially announced the names of the players invited to the Draft Combine being held in Chicago on June 7-8 and the Ohio State Buckeyes had two representatives in the form of senior guard William Buford and sophomore power forward Jared Sullinger.

Sullinger and Buford were both members of the Ohio State team that reached the Final Four this past season. Sullinger was expected to enter the draft last year, but decided to return to Ohio State for his sophomore season. Now, he has decided to test his value at the next level. Sullinger averaged 17.5 points and 9.3 rebounds per game during the 2011-12 season and was a Sporting News first-team All-American in 2012 (in addition to 2011). He is projected by many sources to be a Top-10 pick in this year's draft.

Buford averaged 14.5 points, 5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this year. He is projected as the 52nd best player in the Top 100 on DraftExpress.com.
