DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) - Duke freshman forward Wednell Carter announced Monday he plans to leave school and enter the NBA Draft.
“I want to thank Duke University, my coaches and teammates for helping me so much, not only on the court, but off it as well,” said Carter.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Carter represented himself, his family, and Duke “in a first-class manner.”
"He had a sensational freshman year – a double-double guy – and he has so much more potential. He’s going to keep getting better, because he’s talented and he has the best attitude,” Krzyzewski said.
Carter's 335 boards ranked second all-time among Duke freshmen, as did his 76 blocked shots and 16 double-doubles, Duke Athletics said.
