Odell Beckham absent from Eli’s WR workouts

  Odell Beckham absent from Eli’s WR workouts We don’t know where Odell Beckham Jr. is going to end up. But for now, he’s on the New York Giants. And every year, Eli Manning likes to hold a workout for his wide receivers. “As for Beckham, his absence wasn’t a surprise. He skipped the Manning/Duke camp last year too, saying he had previously scheduled oral surgery for the same week. He hasn’t spoken publicly since the end of last season, though, so his reasons for skipping this year’s session weren’t clear.

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Duke forward Wendell Carter Jr. is leaving for the NBA Draft after one season in college.

Carter announced his decision Monday through the school, and team spokesman Mike DeGeorge says Carter plans to hire an agent.

Carter averaged 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds and a team-best 2.05 blocks as part of a one-two punch in the low post with fellow freshman Marvin Bagley III.

Carter becomes the fourth member of Duke's freshman class to turn pro this offseason, joining Gary Trent Jr., Trevon Duval and Bagley. He becomes the 16th one-and-done in program history.

His decision means the Blue Devils must replace the entire starting five from their regional final loss to Kansas.
