Does this mean Richardson won’t be enrolling?August 20, 2019 at 7:28 am #95782
Don’t have any indication the two are related, but as Greg noted recently it does not appear as if Richardson will enroll.August 20, 2019 at 10:21 am #95798
If he’s not eligible this year that at least secures another experienced WF for next after Haley graduates.August 20, 2019 at 11:04 am #95815
If I read this right, these are pretty impressive numbers over 8 games.
“He played in 34 games last year as a sophomore, starting the last eight. Over that final stretch, he had 42 deflections and drew five charges while compiling 32 rebounds, 16 assists and 12 steals.”
deflections, charges, steals……. sounds like a Huggs D type guy.August 20, 2019 at 12:41 pm #95832
So, my question is, what did he do to get shown the door at Arkansas?August 20, 2019 at 2:29 pm #95833
I went over to one of their boards and saw a few post like this one:
“I was told it was shoplifting. The person I was told by has very good connections to the athletic department. If true, that is just a shame. I’m sure more will come out soon.”
Will/should our university’s student code of conduct rule on his enrollment to WVU?August 20, 2019 at 3:29 pm #95836
If a misdemeanor allegation, charge or even conviction would keep out an athlete it would also keep out a large % of the student population.August 21, 2019 at 7:52 am #95864
Talked to a couple of sources in Arkansas, and they said there was no record in the court system they cold find of any criminal charge against him. That doesn’t mean that’s not the reason, but it could have been handled in some other manner. I’m not a lawyer, though, and don’t even play one on TV.
I know of no indication that this would prevent him from enrolling at WVU. In fact, the quick nature of this would indicate some help from someone in Arkansas of bringing him to the attention of other schools and recommending him.
One of my Arkansas sources told me this is the only issue they knew of with Osabuohien, that he played hard and was not a problem on the court. No other instances of actiong out on the court or anything of that nature.August 21, 2019 at 9:10 am #95869
Seems odd that something like that with it being the only offense would get him booted. But hey …. He looks like a good prospect for us and we certainly can use him next year. Second chances are a good thing if handled right. Welcome to the family Gabe.August 21, 2019 at 10:37 am #95871
Remembering The Lord’s admonition about he who is without sin casting the first stone, I agree that second chances done the right way can often have huge upside returns. And who better to administer the second chance than Huggs.August 21, 2019 at 4:48 pm #95929
Arkansas has a new coach, perhaps he was sending a message with this, that he wasn’t going to tolerate any missteps. No on the record comments to support this, but seems like a possibility.August 21, 2019 at 9:53 pm #95938
He publicly stated that he voted for Trump and Hillary had him canned.
