SMU Recruits in Limbo Following Doherty Firing

Postby dcpony » Tue Mar 13, 2012 8:04 pm

SMU, which will join the Big East for all sports in 2013, has two local signees in 6-foot-3 Xaverian shooting guard Brian Bernardi and 7-foot center Blaise Mbargorba of the Peddie School. Uche Ofoegbu, a 6-5 small forward from San Antonio, is also part of the 2012 recruiting class.

“Right now I’m still going to SMU and am going to talk to my family and coaches about the situation,” Bernardi told SNY.tv by text.

Mbargorba and Peddie coach Joe Rulewich were not immediately available for comment.http://www.zagsblog.com/2012/03/13/smu- ... ty-firing/

We're still headed to the BE. We're still going to renovate Moody. And the new coach will keep them if he so desires... Unless it takes a while to hire a new coach.

They signed letters of intent. They can't leave without sitting out a year.

They can ask for a release, and SMU might or might not grant that, but I'd bet the players are asked to sit down with the new coach(es) before a release is granted.

Do you think the next coach will be able to recruit Africa as well as coach Doh? I'd hate to lose the strong hold we had on that continent.
