Harrell not ready to make any decisions

INDIANAPOLIS - University of Louisville sophomore forward Montrezl Harrell remains uncommitted on his future. Harrell is projected as a first round draft pick in the NBA if he opts to turn pro. Cardinal Authority has the latest on Harrell.

University of Louisville sophomore forward Montrezl Harrell has a big decision looming.

But the 6-foot-8 Harrell told Cardinal Authority that he "wasn't ready" to make a decision on his future and the NBA Draft.

"I will (make a decision) when it's all said and done," Harrell said. "But that's a couple of days away, that's a couple of weeks away, that's something that I really have to think about.

"I just have to let it play out in my head as to what I want to do. I am not looking to make a decision tomorrow or anything like that."

Harrell, whose stock started to rise last summer on a USA Basketball team, is projected as a first-round pick by most of the NBA analysts.

"Right now, I am just trying to enjoy the guys and pull anything positive I can out of this situation," Harrell said.

As a sophomore, Harrell started all 37 games and averaged 14 points and 8.4 rebounds a game. He also was second on the team with 49 blocks.

Harrell set a new school record with 98 dunks on the season, which surpassed the old mark set by Chane Behanan and Pervis Ellison by 39 dunks.

Harrell hit 223 of 366 (60.9 percent) from the field to lead the team.

"I wouldn't say I had a great year," Harrell said. "I would say I had a solid year. I improved in a lot of areas and I think that's great and all, but none of that means anything when you lose early (in the tournament)."

Cardinal Authority will keep you posted on a decision when Harrell makes it in the next week or so.
