St. John's coach Steve Lavin made a statement on the matter, saying that he and Harkless have had discussions about the draft.

"Moe and I have had a number of productive conversations over the past four days. Naturally the discussions covered the pros and cons of leaving St. John's to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA. Moe and his mother Rosa know, regardless of what his ultimate decision is, we enthusiastically support them. They understood that either outcome will clearly help the Johnnies' cause as we continue to build our basketball program."

If he does enter the draft, Harkless is projected as a mid-to-late first round pick by DraftExpress.
