Should Shane Larkin declare or not?

What are your thoughts? Should he come out or stay in school?

Come out, very weak draft,

Come out, very weak draft, and he played very well this year, alot of scouts would gamble on him just because this draft is so weak.

Time to go.

He needs to declare.

His draft stock probably isn't going to be any higher unless he has a major breakout season in his senior year.

Miami is going to be a lot weaker with so many seniors leaving, so unless he get an Erick Green-type situation in which he's a great player on a horrible team, his stock can only go down. Scouts will question why a great player like Larkin can't lead his team to wins.

If he can come back and show

If he can come back and show improved playmaking skill I can see him boosting his stock to being a guaranteed first. Currently I'd put him squarely on the 1st round bubble. The problem is that next yr Miami will be playing with much less talent, so it could be a sink or swim situation with defenses more keyed in on him.

Shane Larkin(Sophomore YR):

Shane Larkin(Sophomore YR): ACC Player of the year

Numbers:
14.5 PPG, 4.6 APG, 3.8 RPG 77% FT, 40% 3PT, 47% FG, 2.0STLS

Hidden Player(Sophomore YR): Player of the year in their conference

Numbers:
14.7 PPG, 2.1 RPG, 4.6 APG, 80% FT, 39% 3PT, 40% FG, 1.0 STLS

Hidden player was a lock for the first round, went back to school and scouts found holes in his game plus a big time injury happened and his NBA stock never was the same again.

This draft is weak, Larkin should go.

This draft is weak up top but

This draft is weak up top but it is not lacking for depth, especially in the mid to late first.

If he had a monster junior

If he had a monster junior year would he be a late lottery pick?

Go Pro. A. This draft

Go Pro.

A. This draft sucks

B. Mediocre PGs are going to go in the first round

C. He is basically the only returning player of importance for Miami, so they probably will stink next year.

D. This draft sucks

Lakrin, NBA draft

Hell No!!! He had a very good season, but the need for a 5'11 player in the NBA isn't huge. He should have fun in college and sure in a couple years, he could jump into the NBA. He's quick and plays with alot of heart.
