    Just because he will graduate doesn't mean he doesn't want to play four years.

    Correct and they talked about him going to grad school at UK.

    I'm guessing he might also want to do a year as a grad assistant before he leaves too.

    Seems he's working on a 2 year time-table....Coincides with Brad's graduation....I don't think that's a coincidence.
    My son has said several times that Coach Cal will do all he can to get Brad a Championship ring.

    Unfortunately Brad doesn’t have enough eligibility left to see one.

    He's now trying to get 5* C (#2 overall) Vernon Carey to reclassify and join next year's team.

    He's also still trying to get #1 overall James Wiseman to reclassify and join next year's team.
    Coach Cal working a new strategy to get upper classmen into the program. Next year will be starting 3 seniors and 2 juniors ... pay no attention to that being high school seniors and juniors.

    Hmmm ... can he still complain about being the youngest team in D1 with that roster?

    Are they complaints or statements of fact? As long as they play well in March and hopefully April, I'm good with it.

    Interesting tidbit with Wiseman....If he were to reclassify, he'd have to stay 2 years. He's only 16 right now and wouldn't be eligible for the NBA until the 2020 draft.

    That would be nice. And I suppose that anything can still happen, but it seems that his mother has been pretty adamant in her recent statements that reclassifying is not an option for her son.

    Can't enter the draft until he turns 19 right? So 2 more years.
