    He will be declaring one way or the other before the NBA deadline. He also said that he won't be waiting for the "11th hour"

    He's got to be coming back. I just don't see how any NBA exec drafts him with a broken ACL in a draft where Aaron Gordon projects at 15th.

    He need to declare (no agent) and go through that pre draft process. There is no downside

    For whatever reason Tad doesn't seem to bank scholarships (George King and Eli) the only "downside is Tad couldn't bring in another player. I'm of the opinion we should bank the scholly

    This has actually changed now, the way they added the advisory committee and moved up the date to declare you don't really get an advantage.

    this rule is dumb and confusing but here it is:

    NBA rule:
    April 27th: Deadline to declare for the NBA draft
    May 20th: NBA draft lottery
    June 16th: Deadline to withdraw from the NBA draft
    June 28th: 2014 NBA Draft


    The NCAA also has a deadline by which players must declare their intention to return to college. The kicker? The NCAA requires that college athletes announce by April 15th. A full 62 days before the NBA requires they do so.

    Here is the deal, Spencer could not declare by the NCAA April 15th deadline, but get good news between the 15-27th and then declare and meet the NBA deadline. Either way, the "real" hard deadline is April 27th, not the 15th. If he did declare by the 27th he's all in, even though the NBA withdrawal deadline is June 16th he misses the NCAA deadline of April 15th to return.

    Anyone know if Tad is going to try to get him to comeback like he did with Andre Roberson?

    Tad is going to recommend whatever is best for Spencer. It's good for the program either way since putting guys in the NBA does a ton for recruiting. With Dre, what Tad was hearing from the NBA was that Dre wouldn't get drafted in the 1st round. Dre got word from 1 (maybe 2) NBA teams that they had an end of the first round grade on him. Dre decided to roll the dice that other players wouldn't slip to those spots and that he'd get picked. Ended up being the right call, but Tad was simply following the NBA draft grade advice.
