With pending changes to the NBA draft eligibility rules can we expect any of our 2019 targets to go straight to the league?

Probably not. But you could see is if a lot of those typical "1 and dones" go straight to the league, UK and Duke will have to go down a level to get recruits, which could effect us.

But depending on the final ruling, I don't think this will effect a lot of players. No more than 10, but probably closer to only a handful. The NBA isn't interested in the #12 overall recruit in HS when they have 4 years of college players and international players to choose from.

For what its worth... in 2005, 10 HS players entered the draft -- 3 were drafted in round 1, 4 in 2 and 3 went undrafted. Twas not a great year for high school players though as the next year would have likely included Oden and Durant etc so there likely would have been more in the draft.
