Aaron Craft had one of the most successful careers in the history of Ohio State basketball. During his time in Columbus, he was everything that Buckeyes’ fans could have asked for in the leader of a team, and for that they will forever be grateful.
Unfortunately, the attributes that made Craft such a great hand in college weren’t seen as something that translated well to the NBA level, and therefore it was a tremendous possibility that he wouldn’t be selected in the NBA Draft on Thursday night.
Well, he wasn’t, as 60 names were called in Brooklyn and “Aaron Craft” was not one of them. There were many point guards selected in the group, but unfortunately, the young man that exhibited more grit, toughness, and will to win than anyone was left wondering about his future.
Still, as with any sport where someone isn’t drafted, it’s not the end of the world for Craft. He will undoubtedly have workouts with teams immediately, and hopefully, should impress a squad enough for them to pull out the pen and paper and have him ink his name to a deal.
Until then, as always, we’re going to stick with Craft’s journey every step of the way, and we can’t wait to provide you all with the story of his first signing with an NBA team.
It WILL come.
