Where do you see this? I take it he won't lose his eligibility right?

Knew it was coming. Bad decision.


Hopefully that’s it from the core.

Can players still test the process one time if they donít sign with an agent?

Welp. The only promising/good underclassman(offensively) from this year gone now. Hope the new guy has some guys ready to come in, transfer or otherwise.

Yes hopefully he doesn't hire an agent, tests the water and decides to return. He will 100% not get drafted this year.

I mean, assuming he doesn't sign an agent, he can test the waters, gauge interest, go through the process, and then come back to school after they tell him he'd be a 5th round pick in a two-round draft. I don't really see any negative to it (again, assuming he doesn't sign). It's a good learning process and he'll be told what he needs to work on to reach the next level. As an outsider, I'm wondering if this is more about LK leaving than it is Harmon thinking he has a realistic chance of being drafted.

Was the decision made before he knew there was a coaching change?

Coach, was this because of Coach Kruger leaving, or was he declaring anyway?

Yikes. Two thoughts:

1. If he legit thinks he’s about to get drafted into the NBA, sign a nice contract and begin a lucrative NBA career, then he has received some horrendous advice and/or is delusional.

2. If he’s just done playing college ball and is ready to try and make some $ playing pro hoops and he understands his NBA prospects are beyond slim, then OK— at least he know what he’s getting into.

The culture around college athletics and especially basketball right now is bad. I understand there are some players perhaps with extreme personal circumstances who might be in dire need of making a living RIGHT NOW, but that’s not the case for most. Leaving early, multiple transfers, etc. man, these kids are missing out on what is likely some of the best experiences of your life.

I wonder if any of the advice they are given stems around taking advantage of a unique opportunity/time in your life, not trying to grow up too fast, etc. or is it ALL “get yours” now. Even when “yours” is likely a tiny fraction of what you’re being sold.
