    $45,000 question now is, "Where will Stanley bring his basketball talent?"

    Sitting out a year and asking ma and pa to fork over some steep Jesuit tuition might be too steep . Hopefully X can find a way with Ben.

    X, as the upgrade in competition, looks like a basketball school grabbing some good talent.

    X can dress this up as much as they can as the school looking out for a student athlete. It's all about basketball.
    Shouldn’t matter if he chose X partly because of basketball, should only matter why he left Hampton. If his reasoning for leaving Hampton is legit, he should be granted immediate eligibility if he transfer to ANY school that could help him to overcome his academic difficulties, no matter what the basketball situation would be. Read the article I linked, it’s pretty self-explanatory.

    They're all basketball grabs. What planet did you just come from ? Do you think coaches go looking for guys who can't play ? Or were you just posting nonsense ?

    WTF? So much for having that "junk yard dog" type in Coach Steele's tool box....we really don't have a player like him. I just hope he will stick around and rub off on our youngsters.

    I pray that is the case. I have to be honest and say I really don’t know what all the options are, with their pros and cons. Explanations are welcome.

    Gotta say, Coach Steele is definitely sticking up for Stanley and cares about his guys, between calling the waiver process "bullshit" and saying "The NCAA always talks about student-athletes, I don't ever want to hear that again" he's going to bat for the guy, this is just a ridiculous decision honestly.
