Feel awful for the guy.

Does he leave or come back?

Best name to come through college bball in a while.

Came home for lunch and they were interviewing Dickie V about rival week and he was talking about how at least x rays were negative. And then a couple minutes later the "breaking news" was that he tore his ACL and is done.

I feel like he almost has to come back. If he went pro, he would likely be a 2nd rounder just at the uncertainty of how he comes back from it

I wonder if he still goes pro, or comes back to UK next year with that absurd recruiting class and just dominates the NCAA.

In this draft he might fall out of the lottery. Definitely no way any team in the 20's would pass on him, they'd just give him essentially a RS year.

I think he still enters draft. He will probably still be a lottery pick even with the torn ACL. He'll still be able to play defense and block shots when he recovers from this injury.

He wont get out the first. Id much rather go pro and get those drs and trainers than what I have in college.

Oh he's gone. Draw a paycheck while devoting his full time to rehab IMO.

I don't know. When you have a very limited offensive game and rely on your defense/athletic ability, I think teams may want to see that before spending a pick on him.

Just looking at NBADraft.net, which is only their predictions, they have guys like Withey and Dieng going at the bottom of the first.

You can't see ACL or MCL tears in an X-ray

You do know who the first pick was last year right?
