Kentucky Michael Kidd- Gilchrist is one of the best 5 freshmen in the country and if he entered the NBA draft this year he would likely be a top 10 pick. After Kentucky’s win over Vanderbilt on Saturday Gilchrist had some interesting comments.
Gilchrist told Brett Dawson of Rivals.com that he is staying at Kentucky to graduate.
“I’m graduating here. I’m not going nowhere. I’m staying at Kentucky,” Kidd-Gilchrist said, according to Brett Dawson of Rivals.com. “I’m dead serious. I don’t know why y’all laughing.”
I wouldn’t read too much into these comments because how many times have we heard this from elite players? Most of the time they say this, and then about 90 % of the time they will enter the NBA draft.
