PLAYERS: Myck Kabongo
TEAMS: Texas Longhorns
Texas Sophomore guard Myck Kabongo should have been a one and done recruit, because he really didn’t get anything done during his second year in Austin. The talented guard has had enough of NCAA rules and regulations, and will enter the 2013 NBA Draft according to ESPN.com.  Kabongo only got the chance to play in the final 11 games of the 2012-13 season. He was suspended by the NCAA for accepting airfare and personal training instruction from fellow Canadian and former Longhorn power forward Tristan Thompson. Kabongo then got in trouble for  providing false and misleading information about the infractions during two interviews with university officials. “When I went to Cleveland, I did not intend to break any rules and did not believe I had broken any. I should have been upfront with UT about everything the first time I had a chance, but I’m glad that I corrected my mistake and I’m glad that I was truthful with the NCAA,” Kabongo said in a statement in February. Draft Express has Kabongo rated as a second rounder at this point.
