Matthew McKenzie has declared for the draft after two seasons. I get the feeling that at the A range of prestige, these highly rated prospects are equivalent to JUCOs. Still, the impact is huge. He came in and averaged 18 points per game when I'm sure he was getting doubled every game. I think long and hard about going after another top rated guy like McKenzie, but I did enjoy having him. I wish he had stayed 1 more season, hopefully we can make the NT again next season and keep that prestige from dropping below A-. For now, it's at an A because we have the Final Four trip in our 4 year window, but it falls out next year.
EDIT: He went 6th in the draft. Teammate Albert Fowler went 24th. Our A prestige, which was probably close to the A/A- line, while still on the A side, is probably much more solidly in the middle with those two first-rounders.
