    I guess he is finding out they wont change his grades once he gets there. This is going to start a trend of Basketball players that aren't very smart.

    Maybe. If he finds success, a lot of recruits will go to Europe.

    Sorry Pete.

    I been blessed to be privy some great college basketball info and have heard from 2 different people that the kid had someone take the the test for him the second time. Rather than avoid embarrassment and questions and getting paid he chose to go overseas and play. Its actually not a bad move if you want to look at it from all sides. He can still get drafted next year and the level of comp is not poor. I cant stand self absorbed people like him but you cant blame him for going on vacation for 7 months and getting paid for it.

    Yeah he must be a real dumbass. Lord knows how he was able to get his diploma and keep a 2.0 GPA to play.

    Dudes a ******. Hey BuckeyKing, you guys picked up the 7 foot center from UAB yesterday. Not a bad grab since he will have a year to develop and at worst will be a 7 foot altering shot machine.

    Just read that today. Probably to fill Mullens spot next year since Mullens will be a 1 and done. ITs too bad Kosta Koufos didn't stay. Kosta would have had a break out year with KK playing PF. I doubt the kid from UAB will be a huge impact player, though I haven't seen him play so I'll reserve my judgment.
