Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors will formally declare for the NBA Draft on Friday.

This development means six of the top eight prospects in Scout.com's final Class of 2009 rankings are entering the draft after just one season of college basketball. In order, they are No. 1 Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech), No. 2 John Wall (Kentucky), No. 3 DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky), No. 5 Avery Bradley (Texas), No. 6 Xavier Henry (Kansas) and No. 8 Lance Stephenson (Cincinnati). The only top eight prospects who have not declared are No. 4 John Henson (North Carolina) and No. 7 Renardo Sidney (Mississippi State), the latter of whom did not play this past season.

Favors is expected to immediately hire an agent.

He averaged 12.4 points and 8.4 rebounds as a freshman.

He's expected to be a among the first five picks in the 2010 NBA Draft.

Lovin' KU by chance?

"In order, they are No. 1 Derrick Favors (Georgia Tech), No. 2 John Wall (Kentucky), No. 3 DeMarcus Cousins (Kentucky), No. 5 Avery Bradley (Kentucky), No. 6 Xavier Henry (Kentucky) and No. 8 Lance Stephenson (Kentucky)."

WOW - who writes this stuff?  KU was loaded in 2010!  Players 5, 6, and 8 were so good, they played for 2 teams in college...

Again....it's UK not KU.

 



KU = Kansas; UK = Kentucky

And I think that was Gary's dream line-up. Wall at the 1, Bradley at the 2, Henry at the 3, Stephenson at the 4 and Cousins at the 5. Gary we all know you like to write about Kentuckyy, but is CBS a one-man office? Do you have anyone there with free time to proofread?

Man, I hate to see this.  This kid is very talented and has alot of upside.  I hate to see him go sit pine for 3 years he could have been playing college ball.  I think he will be a good pro once he improves some of his offensive skills and defensive skills, but what a shame to see him stunt himself by leaving early.  They just don't get the time to improve in the league like they do in college.  But it is hard not to take dollars that are placed in front of you.  Too bad.

i always find it intersting that usually more underclassman leave for the draft then there is the number of picks in the first round, looks like this year wont be any different......is it not time the NBA and NCAA get together and have gm's and NBA people give these kids some real feedback.....

Gary, you appear to have Kentucky on your mind... you've given them 3 extra players.  Who knows, that might have been enough to keep them from choking.
