“He’s younger than I am,” said Dana when asked if he or Devon were nervous about the decision at hand. “I’ve made a bunch of decisions before, but he’s still young. But I do feel like it’s a win-win situation and either one has a bunch of advantages. That’s been our message to him and that’s what the coaches at Kansas have been saying, too.”

After Hampton decision, Kansas drops in Top 25 and 1
“Hampton's decision to bypass college is a big blow to Kansas — which projected as a top-five team with him on the roster,” Parrish wrote. “Without him, I've dropped the Jayhawks to 12th in the 2019-20 CBS Sports Top 25 And 1 preseason college basketball rankings. And they'll drop even more — thanks in part to a recruiting class that doesn't feature a single top-50 prospect — if Devon Dotson doesn't withdraw from the NBA Draft later this week. So stay tuned.”

RJ Hampton says he would have picked Kansas if he didn't go pro
“Next year I will be going overseas to play in the Australian Basketball League with the New Zealand Breakers," Hampton said on the show. "I just think my dream has never been to play college basketball. My dream has always been to get to the next level and to play in the NBA. So I think this is the best route for me to live like a pro and play with grown men every day and not have to juggle books and basketball and just focus on my main goal.”
