Harrell is currently projected as a mid to late first round pick.

Beat Harrell. Beat the Cards.

    Congratulations to him. Lets send him out with a loss!

  2. Joe

    Wow not even waiting for his season to end Friday?

    1. Some Guy

      Took the words out of my mouth. Odd to state that so soon, but I guess he is facing up to the truth that they are going to lose anyway.

    2. jimbob

      probably because nothing about this is remotely official and is not coming from harrell.

  3. Montrezl Harrell

    Now you’ll know why you won’t see me dive for the 50/50 balls Friday. Don’t want to get hurt like my boy Kevin Ware. Just coasting to the draft.

      Who?

  4. truth

    Jon Hood is not ready for the NBA

  5. Brian Long

    I couldn’t appreciate this any less.

  6. What im thinking

    Ricky P will deny, and attempt to talk him into coming back just like Smith

  7. John Wall

    We send 6 players to the nba after our championship and louisville finally beats us and acts like we returned every starter. Lets see how relevant they stay when they lose 3 players..

    Good for him. One more year under Pitino might make him undraftable.

    1. Nate Trump

      Nice. :)

  9. BREAKING NEWS

    Russ Smith to have no other option but graduate and test the NBA waters before he is picked high in the second round and has a short, unsuccessful NBA career and then does local radio ads for car dealerships.

    Pitino previously said he was likely to go in the 1st round. He has a lot of bigs coming in. Plus he will now try to develop Blackshear. Russ didn’t go last year because he wasn’t projected until the 3rd round. Both he and his father got the big head after the tourny run last year and thought he would be a 1st rounder. When reality set in about Russ’s potential at SG due to lack of size, Pitino said his best bet to improve draft status was to come back and learn PG position. That was good advice. I think Pitino is changing a little regarding regarding recruiting strategy.

    1. Mc

      Only Smith is still the 2, and there aren’t 3 rounds in the NBA draft. Plus he’ll still be a second rounder this year. Nothing has improved and the draft class is better.

    Please @8, we don’t need to resort to such remarks. When he transferred to Louisville I don’t think he was even being thought about as a potential pro. The past two years have been great for him at Louisville and elevated him to being a potential lottery pick. Like everyone else, I want desperately to dethrone Louisville. But making these kinds of ridiculous comments about Pitino is just unnecessary.

    D League, then Europe.

  13. cpbutler

    I didn’t know that Russ plays point this year? Chris Jones?

  14. Not sure what to think about this

    Do we think Randle or any of our guys are going to play with any less effort because they’re likely going to enter the draft? No. We usually prefer to think that our guys will play harder knowing it’s their last shot. We shouldn’t think anything different for Harrell.

    Worse yet, the key to the game is what Harrell and Luke Hancock can do. If Randle, WCS, Alex, and Moose can shut Harrell and Hancock down, we win. Wichita State had its guards, especially Barker, and Early (a forward) play out of their minds. But because we shut down their inside game, we won. If Harrell can turn it on inside (which I’m not positive he can do), the UK is in trouble so long as Russ Smith plays even mediocre.

    Harrell will go undrafted!
    Duke and Kansas are destroying college basketball with their One and Done players!

    What time does Duke and Kansas play again?

  16. tltaworl

    You gotta like where mustard pretzle’s head is at. Or Montrezelle Harezzelle

  17. UKBlue

    The kid can play, he’s big; leaving for the draft shouldn’t be shocking news.

  18. Wayne metcalfe

    Who’s going t be worse next year, IU or UL? I say toss up. Maybe lean UL. They lose 90% of almost every stat, have no immediate impact players and are stepping into a new and better league. IU has Crean for starters, losing players left and right, and we’re bad to start with. I’m thinking neither team gets 15 wins or even gets an NIT invite?

  19. Wild Blue

    This will prove to be a major distraction for UL this week as they prepare for Friday regardless if it is true. Pitino with a new conference to explain rumors in three, two, one……………. Remember now he is a chronic liar.

      keep hoping.
