Indiana's Romeo Langford tells ESPN he's entering the 2019 NBA draft.

"I plan on officially declaring for the draft next week," Langford told ESPN Thursday afternoon.

ESPN's draft rankings names Langford as its 11th best prospect this season despite being scheduled to have surgery in Indianapolis for a torn ligament in his thumb suffered in late November.

"I'm looking forward to showing NBA teams all the things that they didn't see out of me during the college basketball season," he said.
