    Wow! So if it was “never his dream to play college basketball” then why lead all these colleges on and go through the recruiting process?!?! Bush league stuff here. BS.

    1. Ben27

      He is no worse than the colleges that play games recruiting. Why pick on some high school kid. Sounds like he is more mature than you are. It was his choice, all the schools knew that this was a possibility and recruited him anyway. It is hard to make these type of decisions at his age. Just be happy he did not choose Memphis! Why can’t you just be happy for him? Only time will tell if it was a wise decision.

      Just bc it wasn’t his dream doesn’t mean he wasn’t seriously considering it. It wasn’t really my dream to go to college either but I kinda had to in order to have the career I wanted. He considered it and decided it wasn’t the best route for him. Lighten up!

      Ballsy move; more refreshing than the Wisemans and McDaniels that are tied to momma’s apron strings.
      Hope it works out for him.

      Well his entire family is moving with him, so not exactly cutting the cord yet. And I don’t blame him, at 18 I’d be the same way.

      Yet AZ has a strong class and LSU is returning players.

    Interesting. Look forward to seeing how this works out for him.

    I really thought this was a New Circle Circular article.

    Taking the Jennings and Mudiay path, I guess. Won’t get the exposure but he’ll be paid and not have to go to class. Obvious that’s what he prefers.

    Poor Kansas (and Memphis).

    1. StillBP

      Yeah poor Kansas. When you’re caught up in a recruiting pay for play scandal so kids pass on you,that’s just too sad.

    2. 4everUKblue

      Well hell, if he didn’t want to go to class why didn’t he just to to UNCheat?

    3. Mathlete

      If he wanted to get paid, he could’ve gone to Dook or Kan$as too haha

    4. Han

      I honestly couldn’t understand why he was considering Kansas since there’s a real chance they get hammered soon (and they should). Maybe he was told it wouldn’t happen until after his year there anyway.

    5. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

      Ment to reply here. AZ has a top class and LSU is returning some of it’s best players even though they’re both in the same boat.

    If he were my son, I would applaud thinking through any process. Elite talent makes it to the League.

      Better NZ than any of KY opponetts

    2. Bruce Dickinson

      On the flip side, if he gets hurt and can’t play then there is no lifetime scholarship to fall back on.


    Well I guess Memphis Kansas or Texas Tech weren’t willing to pay this time

    Do I smell eligibility issues?

    Doesn’t Kansas and Memphis both pay better than a New Zealand team?
