Last year 86 college players left school early to try to play professionally. Obviously many of them did not get drafted and did not play in the NBA. There are allot of players who leave school early knowing they probably won't make an NBA roster but wanting to play professionally at some level. I have no idea if ET is going to leave early or not, but I would not dismiss the idea that he may be ready to start his professional career.

I suspect the question is whether or not Ethan is graduating early. He's a good student, if a pro job isn't imminent he might as well pick up the degree then try to make a pro career happen. If he's graduating in June then all bets are off. I guess a transfer is a possibility, but only if he graduates, elsewise he's probably sitting for an extra year if he transfers.
Ethan was on the radio today. I did not listen to the entire interview but heard the first 10 minutes or so and I heard absolutely nothing about him moving on. He has put his name in for the draft. I fully expect he will pull it and return for his final year.
Seems to me as if WT knew some players with eligibility remaining would be leaving, for one reason or another, and adjusted accordingly. I don't see chaos or desperation; other's mileage may vary.
Yeah, like a barely above 0 percent chance ET leaves, in my opinion. An above average Pac-12 player, but not NBA material.
I agree with both you and other posters. I do think there is not as much chaos on this team as other's infer, that WT does know about player's plans and is working to address it. But I agree with a higher order issue that recruiting has been lackluster and it is feeding into some of this movement and instability.
Yup. College basketball is in a weird place right now where players transferring in and out are just a part of the recruiting process now. After talking with one of the team managers a couple weeks ago, they didn't even know who was going to be transferring out or leaving, but the recruitment of transfers and JC guys that put us over the scholly limit was a proactive approach to knowing they were likely to lose SOMEONE just because of the current nature of college basketball. This is going to be a regular thing especially with the NCAA relaxing transfer rules.
Would I like to see a higher quality of recruit/transfer come in? Absolutely. Do I think the current recruiting pattern is a sign of desperation? No, I do not. It's just a sign of the times.
