I say fine…let him go elsewhere.
From The Times
DeRozan's father and older half-brother said today that the Compton High star, one of the nation's top-rated high school players, would consider requesting a release from the scholarship he accepted from USC in November.
"This is a good wake-up call," Jermaine DeRozan, DeMar's half-brother, said. "I'm just hoping SC doesn't get put on probation [If it does], I would get . . . out of there."
Recruits who sign letters of intent are required to gain a release from that school to be eligible immediately without sitting out a season.
No sweat off my brow if goes elsewhere. No need for another one-and-done player who has to take his SAT’s a second time just to be sure he can get in to USC.
Yes, it’s harsh but why in gods name would we want a player who doesn’t have the guts to compete? I don’t care how good he is, if he goes we wish him luck bu I won’t lose an ounce of sleep over it.
Gotta hand it to Mayo, short of a championship he did exactly what he said he was going to do, put SC basketball on the map, done wonders in branding his name and now he’s done wonders for recruiting.
Thanks, O.J. is there anything else we can help you with??
