A pair of Kansas freshmen, Quentin Grimes and Devon Dotson, are testing the NBA Draft. A third nearly joined them.
Ochai Agbaji missed the start of the season, but came on strong for the Jayhawks as the team faced serious depth concerns. He wound up playing in 22 games as a true freshman.
The former four-star wing averaged 8.5 points and 4.9 rebounds for KU in 25.8 minutes per game.
He shot 44.9-percent from the field and just over 30-percent from three, knocking down one shot from deep per game.
Ochai Agbaji says he considered testing out the NBA Draft, but ultimately decided to commit to a sophomore year at Kansas.
From The Kansas City Star:
Kansas basketball guard Ochai Agbaji admits he considered testing the 2019 NBA Draft waters with fellow KU freshmen Quentin Grimes and Devon Dotson.
“I did for a little bit,” Agbaji, a 6-foot-5 wing out of Oak Park High School, acknowledged after Tuesday’s Kansas postseason basketball banquet at the Burge Union. “Let me work on my game here,” he added with a big smile.
That will entail … “everything in my game … handling the ball, shooting it a little better, leadership skills. too,” Agbaji said.
That is good news for Bill Self’s program too. The Jayhawks could look very different next season, and may lose two big recruiting battles to Duke in the coming days, with Matthew Hurt (deciding this afternoon) and Cassius Stanley (Monday).
Grimes and Dotson could both return as well, based on the feedback they receive. If they both come back, the Jayhawks’ backcourt could be one of the best in the country.
