Jrue Holiday update

I talked to Shawn Holiday, the father of UCLA freshman guard Jrue Holiday, this morning and he said no decision has been made as to whether he will enter the NBA draft.
“No, it has not been made,” Shawn said. “Nothing yet.”
Shawn said an appointment has not yet been made to meet with Holiday and his family.
“We haven’t really discussed it much,” Shawn said. “We took last week off to chill. We’re supposed to schedule an appointment with (Howland) later this week.”

    Something doesn’t sound right, Brian. Saw this headline over at BRO –

    “Holiday to Put Name in NBA Draft”
    “The freshman guard and his parents will meet with Howland today to tell him he’s testing the waters.”

    Holiday to Put Name in NBA Draft

    By Tracy Pierson

    Date: Mar 31, 2009

    A number of sources are indicating that UCLA freshman guard Jrue Holiday and his parents will meet with UCLA Head Coach Ben Howland today, to tell him that Holiday will submit his name into this spring’s NBA Draft and “test the waters”…

    No surprise here, but I think Jrue really does want to leave if he can be gauranteed of being a top 20 pick. Beyond that, it’s too easy to slide out of the 1st round. Much will depend on what Lawson, Evans, DeRozan and all the other underclassment decide to do.

    Is Jrue in class this week or is it spring break?

  • EXbruins

    The spring quarter began yesterday, I would assume he is enrolled in classes to keep his options open

    the kind of mentality we’re attracting is…”im going to be one-and-done if at all possible, i should go to one of the L.A. schools for exposure…”

    Come back Jrue, play the point, lead us to the NCAA’s, and leave as a lottery pick next year.
