The Morris twins of Kansas have already declared that they will be heading into the NBA Draft. Freshman Josh Selby may soon be joining them.
Selby was projected to be a very promising freshman for the Jayhawks, but his first season was subpar in comparison to scouts' expectations. Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD is stating that Selby was working out in Las Vegas recently to get in shape for the the 2011 NBA Draft.
Fans and critics have already started to call the thought of declaring a huge mistake for Selby. Selby has three more years at Kansas where he could turn things around and live up to the hype. He was among the top of the Class of 2010 high school recruits.
The manner in which he was recruited to Kansas was a bit shady.
The NCAA looked into his relationship with a businessman with NBA ties and then laid down the law with a suspension. He missed nine games and as a result even his freshman year at Kansas wasn't as long as it was projected to be.
His draft stock is just barely on the tip of being a projected first rounder. There will not be much surprise if he falls to the second round of the draft. His stock plummeted with his suspension.
Then the fact that he got injured doesn't help. His performance in the NCAA Tournament was not as good as other freshmen.
From the time he was recruited, it seems like Selby has always been in it for the money. As he prepares for the NBA, that's the next step and next check for him to cash.
The best advice anyone can give him would be to stay and improve his game, but ultimately it will be Selby that selects how much he wants to go for.
