Semi Ojeleye rumbled through the paint for a strong one-handed dunk Thursday afternoon during the last game of the day at the NBA Draft Combine. It wasn't necessarily a signature moment where he showed he belongs at this event for draft hopefuls. He proved that last season at SMU. But it seemed to reinforce the decision that college basketball is in his past. Ojeleye, 22, still hasn't hired an agent. And until he does, he could return to the Mustangs for his senior season. But that's not the plan. "I am, technically," he said of being on the fence. "But in my mind, I need to go for it and have faith that it's going to work out. If you're halfway in, halfway out, it's going to show mentally. It's going to show in your play. "I'm going to get my degree here in another week or so. As soon as I figure out what agent I'm going to sign with, I'll move forward with that." As to why he hasn't hired an agent yet? "I'm just trying to get with the right people," he said. "You don't want to mess this one up." Ojeleye has gone through numerous one-on-one interviews during the combine, including with the Mavericks, Miami and Sacramento. He's heard plenty of speculation about where he would fall in the draft - from late in the first round through the first 10 picks of the second round.
