    FIU player blocked from transferring - Declares for NBA

    FIU plays harder than Bo Ryan

    FIU's Dominique Ferguson declares for NBA after failing to get release - CBSSports

    Dominique Ferguson felt he had no option but to declare for the NBA Draft.

    The talented 6-foot-9 sophomore forward, who went to Florida International due to the presence of head coach Isiah Thomas, told CBSSports.com that he is headed to the pros after not being allowed to play at another Division 1 school.

    "They won't give me my release and let me play anywhere else," Ferguson told CBSSports.com. "They give schools too much power and treat us like they own us."

    Ferguson said he was denied the release by the FIU administration following the firing of Isiah Thomas earlier in the month. He said he was also denied in the appeal process.

    Ferguson, who averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds this past season, said it wouldn't even matter if he was released now. He's made up his mind to take a crack at the professional ranks.

    "It's over," Ferguson said. "I'm going to put my name in for the NBA Draft."

    Why post this if we don't have a shot at him? I don't get it.

    On the other hand, this sounds like a messed-up situation. Way to go, FIU!
