His career at West Virginia was short.

His impact wasn't nearly what many of us thought it would be.

West Virginia sophomore Devin Ebanks has declared for the 2010 NBA draft, deciding to leave school in order to pursue a professional career in basketball.

He leaves the Mountaineers after averaging about 11 points and 8 rebounds per game in his two-year career.

Many believed Ebanks would lead the Mountaineers for the past couple seasons, but it was the play of forward and occasional point guard Da'Sean Butler that really helped the Mountaineers throughout the postseason tournament.

Ebanks best game undoubtedly came against Seton Hall on the day after Christmas, where he recorded 22 points and 17 rebounds.

He started all but four games this past season, missing three at the beginning of the year supposedly due to an on-campus fight and an injured finger.

It was no secret that Devin planned to leave the team after a couple seasons.

With the pedigree of an NBA player, many West Virginians knew his time with the Mountaineers would be short-lived.

We wish you the best of luck, Devin, but we would have been much more proud had you stayed.
