Kentucky Wildcats guard Archie Goodwin, forward Alex Poythress and center Willie Cauley-Stein all said they would return to Kentucky, which would give the Wildcats a very deep and experienced team coming back in 2013-14. Injured center Nerlens Noel is expected to go in the top couple of picks in the draft, but has yet to announce his plans.
The 6-4 Goodwin told reporters according to Kyle Tucker: “I don’t think I’m ready to go. We should come back next year.”
The 6-7 Poythress also indicated he would return.
“Yeah, I do,” he said. “I don’t think I’m ready (for the NBA). You’ve just gotta come back and be focused on the offseason. That’s when you get better and just continue to regroup and come back and maybe next year we can have a better year.”
The 7-1 Cauley-Stein said he still wants to win a national title at Kentucky as well as consider the NBA Draft.
“I want to win a national championship,” he said. “Could be next year. Could be the year after. But I never won a ring before, and I really want a ring before I leave college.”
