Not a professional player - still at college level so this fails WP:NPLAYER. Spartaz Humbug! 09:46, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Keep: Terrence is not yet in the NBA, but most likely will be as he has declared for the NBA Draft and according to various websites he is a projected first round draft pick. Also, in the notability guidelines for college athletes, one of the criteria states that the individual garned national media attention. Terrence received media attention when he was named to the All-Pac 12 First Team, for his play during the NIT and when he declared for the NBA Draft. NBA Fan44 (talk) 15:50, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
Keep - One doesn't have to be professional to be notable. At WP:ATHLETE, college athletes can be notable if they: 1) Have won a national award (such as those listed in Template:College Football Awards or the equivalent in another sport), or established a major Division I (NCAA) record, 2) Were inducted into the hall of fame in their sport (for example, the College Football Hall of Fame), or 3) Gained national media attention as an individual, not just as a player for a notable team. Ross received significant media coverage as one of the best players in one of the highest profile leagues in college basketball. Wikipedia editors from outside the US should understand that college basketball in the US receives more media coverage than most countries' pro leagues do in their own lands. Also, Ross is likely to be drafted in the 2012 NBA Draft in less than 2 weeks, which would make him notable again. But a simple Google search shows his college career already meets WP notability standards linked above. Rikster2 (talk) 22:39, 17 June 2012 (UTC)
