Brandon Jennings to play in Europe

Well, a lot of people were talking about it – and it finally happened. Brandon Jennings is going to skip college and play ball overseas.

It was just a matter of time before a player decided to do this. Of course, Brandon is a superstar who should be able to pull this off, but this isn’t an option for most players.

Arizona’s recruiting woes have officially surpassed Maryland’s, I think.

Georgia Tech Basketball Recruiting

Noel Johnson (SG/SF,6’6″,2009), has narrowed his list to three: Louisville, USC or Georgia Tech. Paul Hewitt likes big guards, and Johnson fits the bill. However, it seems (looking in from the outside) that Louisville is the team to beat. If the Jackets miss out on Johnson, it seems likely they would press on Glen Rice, Jr.(SG, 6’4″, 2009) or Trae Golden(SG,6’1″,2010).

    Brandon Jennings going to Europe is not going to take anything away from the NBA, It might actually improve the skill of these players better so when drafted and invested in by teams they are getting more back initially and it is not so long term. I don’t really see this as a bad thing at all. Besides, these kids hardly ever graduate from college.

    I think it serves the NBA purpose either way. I never thought that David Stern was concerned with the players getting a college education. I thought that he was looking at years of declining ratings and thought that the product the NBA was putting on the floor after over 16 years of early entries was the problem. NBA scouts were drafting players on hype, and eventually the league was full of players with only high school or a couple of years of college experience. I think Stern wanted players to get a year playing on national television against better competition to prove their worth.

    Your right Marcus. David Stern and the NBA is all about money. They don’t care about the kids. They don’t care about a college education.
