Top prospect Wall denies he's going pro as recruitment intensifies

As 18-year-old John Wall sat in a lounge at the Westin Times Square on Wednesday -- coincidentally, just six floors above where the NBA draft's media day is held every June -- the first thing he did was address an NBA draft rumor that had gone viral in the past 24 hours. Word was that Wall, the top-rated point guard in the class of 2009, might try to bypass college altogether, because he's in his fifth year of high school (at Word of God Academy in Raleigh, N.C.) and will turn 19 in September, thus potentially making him an eligible draftee under the NBA's age-limit rule.
