Joel Embiid Staying in School?

Published on February 9, 2014 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

Kansas star freshman center Joel Embiid has come out of nowhere this season, and is now considered a top pick for this year’s NBA Draft. Some experts have him going higher in the draft than his much hyped teammate Andrew Wiggins.

Embiid however told ESPN, that he is really thinking about staying in college.

“I’m not even thinking about it right now,” Embiid said. “I’ll make a decision after the season, but I’m definitely considering coming back to school.”

“He’s a bright young man and he’s going to weigh his options,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “He’s considering coming back and he’s obviously also considering leaving. He can’t make a bad decision.”

While Embiid will be a top pick for sure I hope he stays in school. He has ton of potential but he still needs to work on his game. Plus it will be good for the college game if he stays.
