DEERFIELD | Talk about your third-degree. All that was missing Wednesday at the Berto Center was a blinding light in his eyes and the rubber hose treatment.

This wasn't the Bulls' practice facility. This was an interrogation room and Notre Dame junior Luke Harangody was in the hot seat at the team's pre-draft workouts of top power forward prospects.

The Andrean grad has yet to hire an agent and has until Monday to decide whether or not he'll return for a final year of college ball.

Although he shared the court with Pittsburgh's DeJuan Blair, UConn's Jeff Adrien, Wisconsin's Marcus Landry, LSU's Chris Johnson, Georgia Tech's Gani Lawal, Gonzaga's Josh Heytvelt and former Irish teammate Luke Zeller, it was Harangody whom the media sought out afterward.

You don't see this much grilling until Fourth of July.

Going back? Any regrets? Good reviews? Poor reviews? What do you bring to an NBA team? Strengths? Weaknesses? Favorite team? Favorite city? What's Mike Brey think? What's your family think?

"Things are looking good right now. It's gonna be a difficult decision. There's a lot of positives on both sides. Either decision would be a good one," Harangody said. "It's 50-50 at the moment."
