IMPORTANT DEADLINES
SUNDAY.... 2021-04-??, 11:59 PM ET: NBA deadline to declare for the 2021 NB draft
SATURDAY 2021-05-??, 11:59 PM ET: NCAA deadline to withdraw from draft and retain eligibility assuming no agent is hired. Date is ten days after the final day of the annual NBA Draft Combine, scheduled for May ??-??, 2020. This date is NOT the same as the NBA's deadline to withdraw from the draft (5:00 PM ET 2020-06-??, 10 days before the NBA draft is held).
With new NCAA rules approved in August 2018, effective with the 2019 NBA Draft players can hire an agent and still return to school.
Note that the approved NCAA rule that would allow a player who stayed in the draft but went undrafted to return to school does not go into effect until the NBA and the NBPA make their final decision on such players not being NBA eligible again until the next school year is over (expected to be approved, but has not been yet).

Thanks bh.

I searched and saw that back on June 26 Self announced Elliott had entered the transfer portal. But Self also said that as far as he knew Elliott had not made up his mind to leave for sure at that point. I can’t find anything else ... yet.

You have anything else saying EE actually has decided to leave?

Thanks HE and bklynhawk.

I just hope that the car that he's driving in the video was gotten to him on the up & up

Btw, bklynhawk, what's your connection to Brooklyn? I ask b/c I teach in the borough so I was curious.

The OP has been updated to reflect the latest info as of post time (4:08 PM CT 20200810).

And a big THANKS! to Corpus for some errata checks!

The Rivals Ratings have been updated for the latest round, and I've added some new offers that have been tendered since the last update.

Here are the new additions to the list this time around,
F 59/**** Arthur Kaluma 6-7/200 Glendale, AZ/Dream City
G 81/**** Shane Nowell 6-4/180 Sammamish, WA/Eastside Cath
C 143/*** Sam Ayomide 6-11/255 Malvern, PA/Phelps
C --/*** Logan Landers 6-9/215 Cedarburg, WI/Brookfiled
F --/*** Sydney Curry 6-8/265 Fort Wayne, IN/John A Logan CC

Apparently Curry has been in beast this year for Logan CC.

As of right now there is only 1 open scholarship with both Clemence and Adams claiming the first two of three for 2021.
As always, though, we can never be sure who else may decide to leave (for whatever reason) after this season (if there even is one).

Veterans Day coincided with the beginning of the early signing period, and KU commit KJ Adams inked his NLI late Wednesday evening.

Zach Clemence, KU's other early commitment, is set to sign with his HS classmates on Saturday.

The early window closes on November 18.

KU still has, at present, one more ride to fill -- unless someone opts to take advantage of the 2020 COVID19 extra year of eligibility. (I believe the basketball players are eligible, right? I've lost track.)

The Origin Post has been updated to reflect KJ signing, as well as clean up the OFFERS listing.
