Bet on NCAABThe end of the NCAA basketball season is always a time to watch as it is often when many players will declare themselves eligible for the NBA Draft, thus leaving college early. As of May 4, there are 91 early entrants in the 2015 NBA Draft. There are a few players of note that were believed to have considered entering into the NBA Draft but opted not to. The entry for players to get into the draft has also expired, thus meaning that these people will stay for the coming season.
F Zach Auguste – Notre Dame
Zach Auguste was long expected to stay for his senior season with the Fighting Irish although he has shown to be more productive during intense games, as seen in the recent tournament and his 20-point performance against Kentucky. However, Auguste is only getting 12.9 points per game.
G Kris Dunn – Providence
Kris Dunn, the co-Big East Player of the Year, had 15.6 points per game this year. However, nagging shoulder issues throughout the season kept him from being more productive. He will end up staying with the Friars as a means of trying to improve his potential draft stock.
G Buddy Hield – Oklahoma
Buddy Hield won the Big 12 Player of the Year award after getting 17.4 points per game. Still, Hield has been considered to be undersized at the position and will stay with the Sooners for his senior year.
C Jakob Poeltl – Utah
Jakob Poeltl had been eyed by many NBA scouts as a possible option for a stud center in the future, what with him being seven feet in height. With 9.1 points per game and 6.8 rebounds per game, he has an all-around style to his player but his experience may be suspect.
G Kyle Wiltjer – Gonzaga
Kyle Wiltjer had one of the best three-point shooting percentages in the college rank last year. He had a 46.6% three-point percentage while getting 16.8 points per game. He gas proven to be a star for the Bulldogs but he will stay for his senior year.
