What about Grant Williams of Tenn?

I’ve not seen his name thrown around. Believe he was pretty adamant about returning after the loss to Loyola. This is the latest info on him I found:

South Carolina’s Chris Silva is entering his name into the draft, but isn’t hiring an agent.

Kentucky’s Wenyen Gabriel is entering his name in the draft, but is not hiring an agent.

South Carolina’s Brian Bowen, a high-profile recruit at the forefront of the FBI’s investigation into college basketball, has entered his name into the draft. He will not sign with an agent.

Bowen was suspended indefinitely by Louisville after the investigation alleged he and his family received a $100,000 payment to commit. He has not played a game in college.

Kentucky’s Jarred Vanderbilt has declared for the draft, but is not hiring an agent. Vanderbilt is a freak athlete. Don’t think Kentucky loses to Kansas State in March if he’s healthy.

And don’t think Arkansas loses to Kentucky if Vanderbilt had not played. He did not play much last year but was there at BWA and was The factor.

It will take some dogs on the hogs roster to beat Kentucky. You have to rebound and defend. It may not be long before the hogs can have a true shot at beating the Cats.

I hope all the Kentucky players leave school and Greaseball starts all over! It’s nice hearing him say that they are freshmen and young and don’t know how to play!

Looks like Mustapha Herron did not sign with an agent.

Tremont Waters announced on Instagram that he is returning to LSU.

Jontay Porter is officially returning to Missouri for his sophomore year.

Smart decision.

Mustapha Heron has landed at St. John’s, according to Jeff Goodman. Through other tweets from credible accounts, Heron believes he will get a hardship waiver to play right away.

You mean the waiver that Alandise Harris did not get.
