Michigan State forward Nick Ward has made his decision between the Spartans and the NBA.
Ward took to Instagram on Saturday to announce he has decided to declare for the NBA Draft and that he has hired an agent.
First off I want to thank God for giving me this opportunity. These last 3 seasons at Michigan State have been incredible for me. I have been able to become not only a better basketball player but also a better man. I want to thank Coach Izzo and the entire coaching staff for believing in me and pushing me to be better everyday. I want to thank all the fans for the love and support and I also want to thank my teammates for helping me each and everyday. After consulting with the coaching Staff and my family I have decided to take the next step to pursue my lifelong dream of playing in the NBA by declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft. I have also hired an agent. Thank Spartan nation for everything. I will forever be a spartan! #GoGreen
With new NCAA rules, Ward could still return to Michigan State, but most seem to think he has played his final game in a Spartans’ uniform.
