Wall talks about decision to go pro

UK freshman John Wall talked Thursday morning about his decision to enter the NBA draft. Wall is projected to be a number one pick when the draft is held in June.
Thursday the freshman phenom said he is still finalizing things with an agent. Wall says leaving UK after only one year as a Wildcat was a tough decision, but he had to think about what was best for his family. He hopes to be able to take care of his mother in the near future and buy her a house so she can relax.
Wall said he enjoyed the experience of being a student athlete and does hope to finish his degree at UK. The news conference was cut short Thursday morning so Wall could go take an exam.
