EVERYBODY PANIC: Battle Submits For NBA Draft
Perhaps panic isn’t the most appropriate response, as Talor Battle’s decision not to hire an agent leaves the door open for him to return for his senior season, but it’s never a good sign when the heart and soul of your basketball program explores alternatives to being the heart and soul of your basketball program.
Black Shoe Diaries points out that it’s common for players to submit their name for exploratory reasons, only to withdraw and return for their senior season. But if Battle likes what he finds, it’s unlikely half-brother Taran Buie will remain a Nittany Lion.
But that’s something to worry about later. Battle has until May 8th to withdraw his name.
