Freshman guard Ricky Ledo didn't appear in a single game for Providence College this season due to failing to meet the NCAA's academic requirements. However, despite the lack of game action, he will enter this year's NBA draft, according to Jim Donaldson of the Providence Journal.
Ledo was rated a top-25 high school prospect in 2012, and according to Donaldson, is still viewed as a player with first-round potential by NBA scouts. One veteran NBA scout confirmed as much to Joshua Newman of SNY.tv (Twitter link), suggesting that Ledo could be selected late in the first round or early in the second. Back in January, ESPN.com's Chad Ford said the 20-year-old has lottery upside, but almost certainly wouldn't be selected that high after sitting out this season. As Ford indicated, Ledo's eventual landing spot may depend in large part on his pre-draft workouts.
