NBA Draft Rumors for April 30, 2012

Terrell Stoglin

Terrell Stoglin of Maryland declared for the NBA draft by Sunday’s deadline. But he wouldn’t have been able to return to the Terps next season in any event. The school announced Monday that Stoglin, the ACC’s leading scorer last season, was suspended for the year for violating the school’s athlete code of conduct. Mychal Parker, who had already announced that he was going to transfer, was also suspended for the year. Both would have been entering their junior seasons at Maryland in 2012-13. The NBA confirmed that Stoglin’s draft entry letter arrived at the league office by 10 p.m. ET on Sunday night, just two hours shy of the midnight deadline.

Terrell Stoglin and Mychal Parker were suspended from the Maryland basketball team for each failing three university-administered drug tests, team sources said. The drug in question was marijuana, the sources said. The positive drug tests were a violation of Maryland’s Student-Athlete Code of Conduct. The one-year suspensions for Stoglin, the ACC’s leading scorer, and Parker were announced Monday. However, both are planning to leave school.
