The time for young men to make the biggest decision in their lives is running out. With Sunday being the latest a player can throw their names in the NBA Draft, kids are scrambling, waffling and losing sleep at night while trying to figure out what they want to do next. It is easy for us to tell them what to do, although it is a decision that must feel like 590,345 pounds are resting on their shoulders.
As late as yesterday, it seemed like a forgone conclusion that Colorado Buffaloes junior, Andre Roberson, was going to declare early entry for the draft. Folks were reporting it, a press-conference was scheduled for today and the writing was all over the wall.
Well, about that press-conference where he was going to tell the free-world that he was going pro in something other than being a pianist:
Back in the non-inked world… Colorado’s Andre Roberson has cancelled his presser to announce NBA decision.

This could mean nothing or absolutely everything. It is really too hard to figure out if his was just a case of Roberson really wanting to watch more of the NFL Draft or if he is having second thoughts on whatever decision he had made in his cranium.
The rest of today will be full of more reports on the matter. None of them, however, will be as interesting as the surprising decision to cancel his presser.
Again, Roberson has until Sunday to make an official decision. Do not jump to any conclusions about a cancelled presser because at the end of the day, this could just be Roberson’s way of making sure he has all of his facts correct and in order.
