This is exactly what Dick Vitale and Jay Bilas want you to believe.
If kids have a chance at making money overseas rather than wasting a year in a college that they have no intention of staying in, they will go for the money. Wait a year, and then come back for the millions of dollars.
All in all, they need to just lift the one year rule and let the Brandon Jennings of the world just go pro. If anything, the college game might be able to retain more players.
