In light of all of the recent University of Kentucky entries into the NBA Draft this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
But when Wildcat towel boy Bobby Greer declared for the NBA on Thursday it did raise a few eyebrows.
“I just figured that I need to strike while the iron is hot.” said Greer who is 14.
Kentucky has already seen their seven top scorers officially declare to be drafted June 25th.
Karl Anthony-Towns, Willie Cauley-Stein, Devin Booker, Trey Lyles, Dakari Johnson, Aaron Harrison, and Andrew Harrison all announced on Thursday morning they they would be going to the NBA. These seven players make up 85 percent of Kentucky’s scoring this past season.
And now they will be forced to find a new towel boy too.
“It was a tough decision” continued Greer. “I love it here at the University of Kentucky. I am Kentucky blue through and through. But I am excited about what the future holds for me. And like the other players who declared I am hoping the NBA isn’t too much of a pay cut.”
