South Carolina’s P.J. Dozier hiring an agent, staying in draft


This morning’s head-scratching college basketball news comes from South Carolina where Gamecock sophomore P.J. Dozier has decided to hire an agent and remain in the draft.

Dozier is projected as a second-round pick after averaging 13.9 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this past Final Four season. He is the No. 73 NBA prospect in Chad Ford’s top 100 on ESPN.com, while DraftExpress.com had him projected as the 38th pick in next year’s draft.

Dozier’s departure leaves South Carolina without three of its top scorers going into next season. Dozier would’ve been the leading returning scorer and the face of the team had he stayed for 2017-18.

    He must like school as much as Zay

    ^ Yep, almost as head scratching as Briscoe and Humphries.

    ^ Yeah I still don’t get why Zay is leaving other than the fact that he doesn’t like school. Or could there be another reason, like when Azabuki(spelling?) left because of parents financial woes. This is a guard heavy draft.

    Not sure why this news is more head-scratching than Briscoe leaving. Or Skal, Or Orton. Or Dakari. Or….. I guess it’s only head-scratching to KSR writers if someone from a school other than Kentucky leaves early without superstar stats and numbers.

    The head scratching part is why you would leave as a point guard in a guard heavy draft when you are not projected in the first round. You still have 2 years of college eligibility left and could improve your stock. Has nothing to do with who they play for.

    The SEC is shaping up to be very young, and “weak” again next year it seems. I wonder how many teams we’ll get into the Sweet 16 this time…
