    Call me old-school, but I still think a college player should establish the fact that he can play before declaring. This kid added very little to our team last year and accomplished close to nothing. Is it the talent or is it the coaches inability to develop the talent? With a couple one and dones coming on board next year, time will tell. If our AD isn't golfing or charging kids for autographs or busy knowing nothing about his at athletic department, CAE's future should be on the clock.

    Porter never bought in. He had the NBA mentality from day one - black hole offense and very little defensive intensity. He should fit in perfectly in the League.

    It amazed me how far KP2 fell in some of the mock drafts I seen after the season.

    He went from a top 5-10 pick in October, to one mock I seen him in the 20s.
    I know mock drafts are unpredictable, but he went from being a top 5 lock to sliding down into the late-lottery.
    He would have benefited from coming back this season as he would have been the clear g0-to with several upperclassmen gone.

    He's a great athlete, but at this stage he's not a great basketball player and the two don't always go hand-in-hand.

    Agreed.
    The NBA has now drafted prospects based on “upside” and “potential” which is how you end up with a LONG list of busts.

    Bottom line is nobody knows who is going to pan out.
    KP2 was high because of his size and athleticism, but he came to USC and he just didn’t have it.
    Someone will draft him though and time will tell.
    I am ready for them to change the age rule so certain players can skip college altogether.

    At 14 to 20, he HAS to come out. Whatever he needs to learn, he can do that and get paid at the same time.
