KU's Dotson enters NBA draft process

LAWRENCE, Kan. KU Freshman Guard Devon Dotson announced on Twitter Friday, that he will enter the NBA Draft process. Dotson says he will hire an agent, but he does intend to maintain his complete college eligibility. He joins Dedric Lawson and Quentin Grimes in testing the Draft. Two other Jayhawks are leaving the program after K.J. Lawson and Charie Moore entered the transfer portal.

Bill Self said this via www.KUAthletics.com:

"I've had multiple discussions with Devon and his family talking not only about the season but where he stands with his basketball future," Self said. "They felt, and I do not disagree, they could gather more information on exactly where he stands in the eyes of the NBA if he were to declare and get as much feedback as he possible can. They made it very clear to me that in no way, shape or form is he saying goodbye or is he going to compromise his collegiate eligibility in order to get that information. He will follow the guidelines the NCAA and NBA have put forth to allow him to sign with an agent to get feedback and make the decision. We support their decision. Although we wish him the very best in his preparation for this, we also believe there is a great chance that he'll have a tremendous sophomore season at Kansas."
