Kansas State Wildcats (basketball)
KANSAS CITY, MO - MARCH 22: Sam Mills #10, Jermaine Davis #30, O.J. Lewis #11, Taylor Dunn #5, D.J. Peterson #1 and Rohan Brown #35 of the La Salle Explorers celebrate their 63-61 win over the Kansas State Wildcats during the second round of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at the Sprint Center on March 22, 2013 in Kansas City, Missouri.
I'm not sure you can attack a draft in terms of trying to find a difference-maker ... I think everybody you're trying to get is a good football player. The Kansas State coaches would argue that (Nelson) is absolutely a difference-maker. But we'll see how he does in the NFL.
It is important that everyone understands this was a really difficult decision ... This decision was based entirely on my family and has nothing do with Kansas State, basketball or the coaching staff. It's unfortunate after the year we just had, but I just feel right now this is the best thing for me and my family. Whether it is the right choice or not, family has and always will be first with me.More quotes »
