“I have decided to enter my name into the 2010 NBA draft,” says Ebanks. "I spoke to my mother and the coaching staff, and we have decided that I should explore my options to pursue a dream that I have had since I was a little kid. I want to thank West Virginia University, my coaches, my teammates and all the great fans.”
“I certainly enjoyed coaching Devin for two years,” says coach Bob Huggins. “He was extremely coachable and was a great teammate. We certainly wish him the best for a long and prosperous career.”
