Ferrell’s announcement postponed #iubb

There will be no press conference tonight. Yogi Ferrell will wait.

Hours after the death of a 22-year-old Indiana University senior, the Ferrell family issued a release Saturday morning saying that Ferrell will hold off announcing his intention to return to IU for his senior season or enter the NBA Draft.

Ferrell was scheduled to announce his plans this evening at 7:30 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse on the north side of Indianapolis.

The body of Hannah Wilson, a Gamma Phi Beta sorority member, was found Friday morning in Brown County. Indiana State Police arrested 49-year-old Daniel E. Messel on a preliminary charge of murder on Friday afternoon.

“The Ferrell Family sends out its condolences and prayers to the family of Hannah N. Wilson,” the statement read.

The deadline to declare early entry to the 2015 NBA Draft is Sunday at 11:59 p.m.


  1. I don’t think lottery picks create this much drama. Crean got your big man. It’s time to fulfill your legacy as a hoosier and then go pro.

  2. I’m pretty sure that LeBron James would concede that the biggest blunder of his professional career was “The Decision’ televised announcement. He is still trying to live that one down.

    Young players take heed.

  3. Just send condolences to the Wilson family. I can’t even imagine what they are going through. R.I.P Hannah.

  4. My condolences to the Wilson family on their tragic loss. Such saddening news. Makes everything else seem so small and unimportant.
