Players should do the Kentucky basketball route, one year and out. Being accepted in a top school that one can go back to later has great value.
But that's not why the basketball players do it
They do it because they need a year in the NCAA before the NBA, it's a rule
You really think they care about getting an education like tennis players do?
The only reason women's players do the whole 4 years is because they don't make enough in the WNBA so they need to find another job after they retire
