Embiid, in a Twitter exchange with Cliff Alexander, a top recruit who has committed to play for Kansas next season, was responding to a sourced report by Yahoo! Sports that the 7-footer was heading to the pros. Should Embiid declare for the June 26 draft, he is projected by many to be among the top picks.
@humblekid11 haven't made a decision yet

Kansas coach Bill Self told ESPN's Andy Katz that the 20-year-old Embiid had not informed him of a decision. And Luc Mbah a Moute, Embiid's mentor, also said on Twitter that the freshman has yet to decide.
Embiid averaged 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocks this season. He did not play in the Jayhawks' final four games -- including two in the NCAA tournament -- because of a stress fracture in his back.
Alexander is a five-star power forward out of Curie High School in Chicago and part of the Jayhawks' No. 8-rated class in the ESPN.com rankings.
