If he does stay more than one year, it won't be because of a dedication to education, but rather because he feels he can improve his draft stock.
See that's where I disagree a little bit. I think he could be motivated by both:
a) better preparing himself for the NBA
b) getting his degree in 2 years (or nearly so)
I think he would have had those goals anywhere, but it makes it easier for him to stay that extra year at UK because of the tutelage that he is receiving.
It's all just supposition in the end.
Hopefully he'll be a 4 year player, just like the rest of his teammates.
