Providence losing Ricky Ledo before he ever even played for the Friars

Providence is losing Ricky Ledo before it ever even got him on the court. The 6-foot-7 wing will, according to a report in the Providence Journal, enter the NBA Draft, meaning he'll forever be somebody who attended PC but never actually played at PC.

Ledo was a partial academic qualifier this season.

He practiced with Providence but was not allowed to play.

Ledo was a consensus top-20 recruit in the Class of 2012. The prep-school product is an elite scorer whose talent is undeniable, but his ability to win and be a good teammate has long been debated. It's unclear whether he could crack the first round of this draft.
