Per the CBA. "If a Player drafted at age 18 or 19, who had received a Bona Fide Offer..., becomes a bona fide college student prior to the second June 1 following his selection in the Entry Draft and
remains a bona fide college student
through the graduation of his college class, his drafting Club shall retain the exclusive rights of negotiation for his services through and including the August 15 following the graduation of his college class."
The key word here is "remains" and he didn't "remain" a college student unless there is some special out clause that allows players to return to college before his original college class graduated (August 15, 2012). In this case, the new date would be August 15, 2013.
