    He announced it on Twitter about 15 minutes ago.

    I wish him the best of luck, but I can't see a him being a first rounder to anyone. Someone might take on chance in the 2nd. I think he ends up overseas.

    I will be surprised if he's drafted.

    While frustrating at times, I probably enjoyed Briscoe's game more than most on BGP. I wish him the best, but I also don't think he sniffs the first first round. Hopefully he gets a shot.

    This one surprises me a little bit unless he felt pressure from the incoming freshman..

    I have never been a fan of Briscoe. I wish him well in his future endeavors and really hope he's making the right decision for him.

    Few hundred G's a year minimum to play ball is a pretty sweet gig if you can get it. Especially when you're only 20 years old.

    I wish he would have come back. I don't believe that he will make it in the NBA. He can make some good money overseas, if that's his desire.

    Bad move. He's not even projected to go in the 2nd round

    Play for free and have to go to class or pay for a few hundred grand a year minimum?

    Hmm....Not much of a decision if you ask me.

    He's not even projected to go in the 2nd round according to NBAdraft.net. Bad move.

    P.s. Someone can either merge or delete the other thread I created. Didn't see this one!

    As a 19-20 year old, you'd have turned down a few hundred G's a year to play a sport? Please.

    He has no chance of making the NBA. I hope I am wrong saying that though! His game does not translate. He is not explosive, doesn't handle the ball great, can't shoot. What does he do well? All he does is attack the rim strong! I am sorry, but at 6'3 in the NBA that will not work. He is not a high flyer either so that will not help him on drives. He has no shot of playing in the NBA, he needs to get his diploma.

    This guy does not get drafted even if he stays another year or two. Simply cannot shoot the ball consistently enough. Enjoy time in D-League and/or overseas rather than getting that college degree.

    This is the biggest problem with college basketball today. "Average" players looking to make the jump for a little money that will not last them until they are 35 or 40 years old.
