Have to think there's almost zero chance he stays in, but Atkinson will declare for the NBA Draft per Stadium's Jeff Goodman. Likely just hoping to get some feedback from NBA teams, as I haven't seen his name on draft boards.

Matt Morgan did a similar thing, declaring after both his sophomore and junior years. From what I've gathered it's just a way to get yourself on the NBA's radar earlier

One of the things players declaring often get is an opportunity to play in pre-draft events against other players who have done the same thing. The players who then choose to go back to college have likely gotten very good experience and some pointers on what they should be working on. Atkinson is unlikely to get such an advantage this year.

Mangano, mason, Atkinson and maybe bruner

JJ is supportive

It bodes well for Yale. God forbid he works his jumpsuit more. Will be unguardable in this league but likely needs too now that Jordan is gone to open the floor.

Bruner took it for the team vs individual stats to fight paint packing.

- The Ivy League saw a mass exodus into the transfer portal this fall, both before and after it ultimately canceled the basketball season. The most sought-after player in that group is Yale big man Paul Atkinson, who earned Co-Player of the Year honors in the Ivy last season.

Atkinson averaged 17.6 points and 7.3 rebounds last season, and heard from more than a dozen schools in the days following his transfer announcement. He plans to cut his list to five schools in the next week or so, but he told ESPN that Notre Dame, NC State, Iowa, Miami, Kansas, Cincinnati, Texas, Ohio State, Oklahoma State and Georgia have been the schools in consistent contact.

Atkinson said he doesn't plan on dragging out his recruitment until he's able to visit schools, but there's no specific timeline for a decision. In the meantime, he continues to work toward graduating and getting shots up when he can get access to a gym.

"I've been watching a lot of games," Atkinson said. "It's definitely not the easiest thing to see, but it's good for me to see the schools I'm considering next year." -
