This will probably not come as much of a surprise to some, but Maryland center Alex Len will forego his final two years of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft. 

The 7'1", 255-pound Ukrainian averaged 11.9 points and 7.8 rebounds for the Terrapins. Len is only 19 year old and is very raw, but has been projected by many experts as a lottery pick in June's draft. The Terrapins have had 17 players selected in the first round, the most recent being Greivis Vasquez in 2010.

Maryland will now have to replace both Len and Pe'Shon Howard, who announced last week that he will transfer.
