Jodie Meeks Leaving Kentucky, Staying in the NBA Draft

Jodie Meeks has released a statement indicating that he will be staying in the NBA Draft. Although most predict that Jodie will be a second round selection Meeks has still decided to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA. This is a blow to Coach John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats but even without Meeks Kentucky should be heavily favored in the SEC.

Meeks has worked out for several NBA teams including Minnesota, Philadelphia, and Washington.

Jodie's 54 point performance at Tennessee last year was a record for the most points scored in a game from a Kentucky player. Meeks is a 56th member of UK's 1,000th point club and also holds the record for single season three pointers made.

His draft prospects probably wouldn't have been any better next year. I can't blame him.
