Kansas C Joel Embiid Strongly Considering Staying In School



Joel Embiid might be the talk of college basketball, but that doesn’t mean he believes everything he hears.

Embiid told ESPN that he’s now strongly considering returning to Lawrence, instead of chasing NBA millions.

“I’m not even thinking about it right now,” Embiid said. “I’ll make a decision after the season, but I’m definitely considering coming back to school.”

“He’s a bright young man and he’s going to weigh his options,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “He’s considering coming back and he’s obviously also considering leaving. He can’t make a bad decision.”

Embiid has only been playing organized basketball for three years, so it’s only natural that he might want to hang out Kansas for a couple of seasons and soak up all he can from Bill Self.
