The 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball Champions have selected their agents for the 2008 NBA Draft. On April 7th, I pondered whether any of the departing Kansas Jayhawks would be signing with either Jeff Austin or Mike Higgins based on their historical ties with Jawhawks players. Four Jayhawks have made themselves ineligible for the 2009 season and entered their names into the 2008 NBA Draft with the formal signing of an agent. None of them have selected Austin or Higgins.
