Despite recent rumblings both ways, those closest to Marcus Smart have indicated that the talented freshman guard has yet to decide whether he would declare for the NBA Draft.
Finally, Smart came out and said it himself, through Twitter, providing the most credible source of information on his thinking yet:
Smart and his family were scheduled to meet with OSU coach Travis Ford at some time on Friday, likely discussing the pros and cons of both sides.
Some expect the decision to come at some point early next week, potentially in a press conference. But nothing is in concrete.
