A week ago, everyone on the prospect thread was sure he'd be going back to DU, and even more sure that he should be going back to DU. Everyone was right then. Flip-flopping because someone made the wrong move is not a good way to be right.
I suspect this decision has a good bit to do with the decisions that others at Denver have made following the end of their season. A month ago I would have agreed that staying another year was the right move for him, but at this point I think this is the right decision. To those who are saying "another year in the NCAA would have been good for him", I'd just say this: when he initially went to Denver, three years would have been ideal for his ideal development path, but I don't think that's the case anymore.
