Joe changes mind, putting name back in mix for NBA Draft

A couple of weeks ago, Arkansas basketball fans were trying to figure how far they could go in the NCAA Tournament this year, but Isaiah Joe threw a curve ball into the mix Monday morning.

The Fort Smith shooting guard released a statement on Twitter he’s putting his name back into the NBA Draft.

“Due to the COVID-19 virus and the unprecedented cancellation of fall sports by several major college conferences in the past week, I believe it is in my best interest to forego the remainder of my college eligibility and re-enter the NBA draft in time for the league’s Aug. 17 deadline for underclassmen to declare.

“My announcement on Aug. 1 to return to school for another season as a Razorback was made with whole-hearted excitement and sincerity, but a lot has happened in a short period of time since then to increase the uncertainty that college sports will be played this season.”

Most of the news surrounding the virus has been on the rapidly-approaching football season but the Pac 12 has cancelled everything through the calendar year so Joe obviously re-thought things.
