Basketball players who have declared for the 2013 NBA Draft have until tomorrow to withdraw their names and return to their respective schools should they determine that it is not yet the right time for them to join the professional ranks. Complying with the NCAA Early Entry Withdrawal Deadline will be enough for those aforementioned players to retain their student-athlete eligibility as long as they have not yet agreed (orally or in writing) to be represented by a basketball agent. However, seniors have nothing to worry about. If they know who they want to represent them, they may as well sign, as they will not be returning to school for an additional year. Nate Wolters of South Dakota State has made his decision.
Wolters is now represented by Jared Karnes of Allegiant Athletic Agency (A3 Athletics). In fact, A3 Athletics’ website has already been updated to reflect the new relationship between player and company.
DraftExpress.com currently has Wolters as a mid-second round selection in the 2013 NBA Draft, while NBADraft.net believes Wolters will be a late-first round pick. Whether Wolters is a first or second round pick, if he is drafted at all, it will be a big announcement for Karnes and A3 Athletics, who have not represented a first or second round NBA Draft selection in the past two years.
