Stay in school, or enter draft?

Omer Yurtseven was projected by some as a potential lottery pick when he decided to play college ball. But his stock dropped considerably with a disappointing season in which he averaged 5.9 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

UNC Wilmington transfer CJ Bryce told ESPN he still isn't 100 percent sure he will visit NC State this weekend. Also heard from Maryland, Gonzaga, Texas, Wake, Miami and South Carolina. "NC State is at the top of my list because of Coach (Kevin) Keatts, but I'm still open."
