It's finally going to end

says Kansas, Duke and UCLA are sticking out above the rest....
Well that sucks. This guy could get a ton of PT with Sully and possibly Thomas gone :(
Don't worry, he'll probably be a one and done.
With Thomas likely leaving, missing Parker hurts...it is a bummer, at one time it looked like OSU had the upper hand. Sully was already leaving and Amir will be solid I think. But a PF with scoring ability would have been nice.
in this interview says he is still considering the Bucks....

The 11 April date implies consideration for who may or may not be turning pro.
I certainly don't see any candidates at UCLA or Georgia. Duke loses a Plumlee but keeps several bigs in any case.
If it boils down to who makes room by going to the NBA it sounds like Kansas and OSU to me.
As far as Parker being a one-and-done - I'll take it. A kid of his talent working with Amir up front could be the missing piece next season.
Not sure if it is true but I was told that Shabazz Muhammad is no longer considering UCLA. IF that's the case, and I stress IF, then UCLA can't look good for Parker...
Bingo. One-and-dones really hurt when you have an entire class all leave, but having Parker for a year is that missing piece to plug in for Thomas and go with Amir. Ross will be a lengthy scoring threat but from what I understand, Parker brings legit defense to the table. Plus we just really need at least one decent prospect in this class...it would hurt to bring in nobody or some last minute JUCOs. I think this team can still be great next season with Craft, Smith Jr., Thompson, Ross, and Williams on the floor, with Seibert and Scott playing some, but a big man would really help, even if for a year only.
Seibert back to Parker:)
The UCLA thing is most baffling to me as it seems Howland's seat should be red hot. Regardless, Tony would be a much needed and highly valuable piece here but something seems amiss. Hope it all works out for the best.
