UNION, N.J. — Brandon Jennings could be done with the NCAA before even spending one year on campus.
A 6-foot-2 point guard out of Oak Hill (Va.) Academy and the top-ranked prep player in America according to ESPN, Jennings is considering spending one year in Europe instead of playing next year at Arizona, the school to which he committed.
The question is: If Jennings goes overseas, will it set a trend for others to follow? Could we see a Lance Stephenson or a Renardo Sidney follow Jennings abroad for a year before entering the NBA?
