McDaniels makes his decision, announcement soon

Clemson standout junior K.J. McDaniels has made his decision on whether to turn pro or return for his senior season, and an announcement could come later this week, according to his mother. What does she say about the decision? Full Story »



Let's hope he stays!

He stays and we are NCAA tournament good, and may be able to make a good run. He goes, we may make the tournament, but not a deep run.

I'm not sure if him following his dreams and it not being about the money is good or bad, for once… I'm hoping it's good though

If he stays another year, he will be a lot better than he is now. If he is a maybe 1st round, next year he will be a lock 1st round. Brownell is a BB COACH, he makes players better players!!!

Being the forever pessimist, the wording in this article

sounds like he may leave. :(

But, I am very proud of all he has done for Clemson basketball! I will support him in his decision.

I hate to say it and I hope I'm wrong

But to me it sounds like he is gone.


KJ to make his announcement via Tigernet

The last sentence in the article says "It's not about money"

If that's true, then he'll stay another year.

He had a fine season, but he has a lot of room for improvement.

He can get a lot better and can enhance his position for the long term if he's not overly enamored with the financial payday he'd make in the short run by leaving early.


Or, "it's not about the money," as in...

It doesn't matter to him whether he's pick #25 or #7. Sometimes it's good to take the opportunity when you have it, because you're not ensured of another one.

I talked to his mom and dad in New York....

and they said they honestly didn't know what he was going to do. However, his mom did say that if it was up to her she would like to see him get his degree.




Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


Generally, Mom knows best.***

well she was smart enough to know that RN could get away

with his crap at old miss but not at Clemson.....


I always listen to my momma


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 1:01 AM
 

and it usually works out pretty well :)


You can get a degree anytime. If his NBA stock is high


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 11:18 AM
 

he should go for it.

There's something in these hills.

The general tone of this article sounds like he is gone...and if he is I wish him well and I can say I have watched one of the most exciting Clemson players to ever lace 'em up in Little John. Good luck KJ with either path you choose!!!


"one of" but not "the"........."the" is still Skip Wise IMHO***


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 3:41 PM
 




I hope I am right but if he had decided to leave it would


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 3:03 PM
 

have leaked by now. An agent is not going to sit on this announcement.


Is there a press conference...


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 3:22 PM
 

Scheduled? My experience on this is when there is a press conference the player leaves, if not he's coming back. Any idea???


signed CJ Spiller...signed Tajh Boyd...signed Nuk Hopkins?***

You forgot Vic!***


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 3:44 PM
 




Actually he is the only one the last few years that fit his


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 4:02 PM
 

example...

I could have also mentioned Martavis Bryant as he didn't have a press conference...


Gone! Thanks KJ and best of luck!!

These quotes sound like thwy are softening the blow.. genuine, but still read to me like he is gone. What a joy it was to watch this guy.. love the credit gocen to BB and staff. Thats recruiting gold.

null


STAYING***

For the fans and Team's sake

I hope he returns, but as for KJ...might be good if he
went pro.

#21


Sounds like he might be leaving, which would be a mistake.

As good of a year as he had, it was still clear that he has some significant aspects of his game to work on. That includes his outside shot, his ball handling, and his passing. I have no doubt that he will ultimately improve those deficits, but it's much harder when you are a late first round or second round pick as opposed to a lottery pick. Teams just don't tend to be as patient with those they don't invest high picks in.

I would certainly love to have K.J. back, not only for his own development, but for the good of our basketball team in 2014-2015. Regardless, I wish K.J. all the best and am confident he will be successful.


no doubt...get buried on a bench and your development is


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 12:38 PM
 

slowed. However I think it comes down to one thing...does he dream of being a top pick or simply an NBA player.


Re: New Story: McDaniels makes his decision, announcement soon


Posted: Apr 7, 2014 5:39 PM
 

Is he going to class that would be a clue he is staying !

Sounds like he went straight home after NY,NY.


He Gone

Wish he'd stay because i think next year could be really exciting. He could also polish some ball handling & shooting skills to raise his stock in the Draft next year.

Reading this makes it sound like a done deal though that he's gone.


staying or leaving?


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 9:52 AM
 

If he is staying... why wait to make announcement?
Seems KJ is humble and not for fanfare.

Sounds to me like he is going and will now get his business in order..pick an agent, set up training, etc. As a business decision he probably should capitalize on being only person in NCAA's to lead his team in those 5 or 6 categories. Next yr his overall stats could go down and the team be better. But I think kj will always have pts blocks and rebounds.

I just do not see why someone waits to say that they are coming back. But I hope we have a cj moment for cu basketball.


Stay K.J..........stay. As an announcer said in the NIT


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 11:09 AM
 

game, it is one thing to get drafted and entirely another thing to make a roster. Get that one more year.


I tend to think that if a big exciting announcement is comin


Posted: Apr 8, 2014 11:27 AM
 

g later in the week, then this already sez it all: he's leaving.
