Wouldn't it behoove him to come out and say he wants to go pro?

I imagine teams might be hesitant to use an early 1st rd pick on him given that it's been a really long time since they've seen him in action and he's only 17. I also imagine teams would be hesitant to draft him after the 1st as they're not sure how badly he wants to go to college. If I was in his shoes and I was planning on going pro, I would come out and say "If I get drafted in the 1st, I will probably go pro" or something like that. Obviously, he doesn't want to negotiate against himself, but that might give a team more confidence to draft him earlier.
