‘After the season-ending loss to Robert Morris, a few select players said in the post-game interviews they would be back at Kentucky next season. Most notably, Archie Goodwin and Alex Poythress both said they are definitely not ready for the NBA. Willie Cauley-Stein mentioned the same notion, and tweeted a countdown to Big Blue Madness after getting word that Julius Randle was coming to UK. If any of those three players were to jump, Cauley-Stein would be the one to do so. The draft stock in Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin has plummeted since the loss at Robert Morris to close the season. Both players are still projected first round pics, but neither player is nowhere near the draft lottery. It’s still very possible that one or two could leave, but highly unlikely that all three of them enter the draft. As for Cauley-Stein, he may be giving us a clue with his new Twitter name and what he has been tweeting lately: As you can see, he has changed his Twitter username from WCS15TimeFor9 to TrillWill15. It’s a subtle change, but it could mean a lot. Plus, the idea of being an 18 to 19 year old millionaire is probably a hard one to get out of your head. I selfishly hope that he does return to improve his game and make next year’s squad even deeper, but I don’t know his situation or what his family may need. The timing of these gestures and tweets are also telling. John Calipari has met with both Hawkins and Wiggins in the past 72 hours. With an overloaded roster, Calipari has to know a couple of guys are leaving for him to want to bring two more guys in the program. Best of luck to him on his decision.
