    Olu Ahsaolu testing draft waters

    Per Chad Fordes twitter:

    "Joseph? Yes. Ashaolu? No. RT @WolstatSun: Canadians Cory Joseph, Olu Ashaolu testing draft waters. Potential 2nd rounders?"


    Anyone know if he is hiring an agent or just testing waters and will likely be withdrawing when he sees analysis like Fordes?

    Fordes indicates that Ashaolu is not testing the draft waters in his statement...

    I interpret that as both are testing draft waters, Cory Joseph is a 2nd rounder, Ashalou is not likely to be drafted. I am elderly (nearly 29) and am new to twitter, however.

    I'm not sure what he is saying. It sounds like he is predicting whether or not they would get drafted in the 2nd round? but you could be right.

    If Joseph decides to stay at Texas, look for Texas to make a very strong push for Ashaolu. They need him badly with the departure of Thompson and could be guaranteed more PT there than with ISU.

    I know we will have more depth next year but saying Texas can gaurantee him more time than ISU is funny.

    You won't think it's funny once you check Texas' returning frontcourt players and who they have signed.
