Samardo will test his NBA draft stock, but will not hire an agent, according to a statement released by the university today.
Pitino must be furious over the timing, a mere couple hours after he announced in a press conference (when he was in startling good spirits) that everyone would be returning. You could sense the frustration in the carefully and forcefully worded statement. Pitino said, "He will not hire an agent, and I will orchestrate his NBA visits from my office." I'm fairly confident I know how those visits will go, and would be very surprised if his name remains in the draft.
And yes, Mr. Black, the CJ has now gotten on board with the story. But your question remains, why were they so slow on this?
In more positive news, Justin Coleman has signed his Letter of Intent to Louisville. He is yet to qualify academically, however, and some (including Jody Demling) have expressed doubt that he will.
Watch out if he does, though. Pitino's offense is a different animal with his kind of explosiveness at the wing. And more importantly, if he doesn't qualify that would all but seal my fate in our little gentlemen's bet. C'mon Justin, hit those books!
