Monroe to Go Pro, Plans to Hire an Agent

Even though he indicated that he planned on returning in the moments immediately after Georgetown’s opening-round exit in the NCAA tournament, sophomore center Greg Monroe has decided to enter his name in the NBA draft and plans on hiring an agent.

A couple of quotes from the press release:

“Greg and I, along with his family, have examined the situation and he has made an educated decision,” Head Coach John Thompson III said. “We have watched him grow as a player and as a young man while here at Georgetown. We support him and I look forward to watching and cheering him on for many years to come.”
“It was mentally what I wanted to do,” Monroe said. “I feel like I’m ready to make this step after working with our coaches for two years. I’ve enjoyed being able to represent Georgetown. I’ve enjoyed my experience and while I am leaving campus, I still will always be part of Georgetown.”

Monroe is a sure-fire lottery pick, with multiple NBA draft websites projecting him in the top 10. has the 6-foot-10 sophomore going No. 6 overall to the 76ers, has him slated to go to the Utah Jazz at No. 9, and ESPN’s Chad Ford sees Monroe joining Roy Hibbert and the Indiana Pacers at No. 10.
