According to multiple reports, Memphis sophomore Adonis Thomas is heading to the NBA.

Thomas was a McDonald’s all-american in high school, but he didn’t live up to those expectations. As a sophomore this season, Thomas averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 boards. He’s projected as a second round pick.

Thomas may not be the only current Tiger that ends up leaving the program this offseason, as Tarik Black is also considering transferring. The good news? Pastner will once again bring in a loaded recruiting class. Five top 100 recruits, headlined by five-star Austin Nichols and talented wings Nick King and Kuran Iverson, should help ease any roster attrition.

    I don’t get this, why enter the draft when you’re projected in the second round at best? Why not get an education and then tryout for a team, he’s probably going to end up in the league anyway. An underclassmam should only declare for the draft if he’s projected in the first round, or even the lottery. If not, it’s not worth it.
