Will Roby be back next year?

I always try to be an optimist... but Roby ain't coming back.  He's a solid prospect with a big upside.  So many tweets about him right now.  

i don't think anybody believes he's coming back, but i will be shocked if he cracks the 1st round. in the 1st round you either want a guy that can play right away or a 19 year old with a ton of upside. i don't think roby fits either of those. he's almost 22 and isn't ready to play in an nba rotation IMO.

I would add 2% to that probability.  Everytning from how we are recruiting, what Roby is doing and saying, to how the coaches have responded to the situation clearly shows (at least to me, anyway) tha

Just because someone is working in Chicago doesn't mean they're not keeping up with classwork. Also, if we don't have mechanisms put in place for guys to go early in the NBA draft while keeping up wit

What they don't get is players getting drafted and going pro is good for the Huskers, because a program that sends kids to the NBA is able to recruit more NBA-quality kids to come play for it.

basically the same measurements as cam reddish who is a SG/SF. i don't see roby being able to guard bigs with those numbers. there's little proof roby can play SF at a high level. i would guess he is a 2nd rounder.

I personally wouldn't take Cam Reddish in the lottery tho...

 

Roby is different because he is best positioned, and has played, as a strech 4 the last two years. Roby can defend down low, while Cam Reddish was never asked to.

I love Roby, and i hope a quality team falls in love with him during individual workouts.

 

My biggest beef with Roby was missing the first shot of a bunch of critical  1n1s. He missed a one and one against ohio state last year(2017-18) that would have tied the game. If we won that game we would have made the tourney. Also the @Maryland game this year... And 2 others i can think of but who cares.

Roby has always been a dude about "potential" which is what the NBA salivates about. We'll have to wait & see where Isaiah winds up. And it could be a perfect fit, all things considered, concentrating on hoops all the time.

He tested fantastic physically, to no ones surprise.  Top 5 in some major indicators of athletic talent.  With his strong finish today, I think he’s getting drafted for sure, and I couldn’t be happier for him.  

has roby done testing yet? his measurements were solid, but nothing groundbreaking. i would guess he gets picked around 40.

 

khyri thomas got picked 38 and got a 3 year guaranteed deal, so i'm guessing roby will get something similar.

Yep he tested really well in several categories—great agility and vertical jump scores. Top 5 among bigs.

I love that they still appear to be friends, and I would love to see Timmy back at Nebraska in some capacity in the future.

 

That will probably happen when Fred moves on to his next stop in a few years... and we go out and hire recently fired NBA coach (and former conference foe) John Beilein to replace him.

Keep in mind that "a dude" to our talent starved eyes is not necessarily an NBA "dude."

He got a two year guaranteed deal that is backloaded a bit.  If he doesn't get the third year option picked up he comes away with 2.2 million over the two years.  This is a good deal for the second round.  This is the type of deal Roby should need or he ought to come back IMO to have a shot to secure such deal.

I'm hoping for SA because Pop and that organization does so well with making players better.

 

I don't want him to be like so many others where they get drafted and don't do much more than carry the bags and make food runs for the stars, then bounce around the league and "play" like 4 years then are done.

"Roby told reporters that he has met with Houston (no draft picks), Miami (13), Phoenix (6, 32), Toronto (59) and Golden State (28, 58) at the combine."

 

If I was a betting man and if no other teams contact him.  He is going to be picked 28th to Phoenix or 32nd to Golden State

 

Lot of smoke about the Bucks at 30.
