    Royce White dismissed from High School Team

    Per the Star Tribune today:

    http://ww3.startribune.com/blogs/pre...asalles-white/

    This had been rumored for a while, among Mpls area basketball people, and i believe even someone here on Cyclone Fanatic. It's now official. Off the team and kicked out of La Salle.

    Hopefully he gets it figured out.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    It depends on the circumstances of his dismissal, IMO. If it was something serious, then I would say no way. If it was something that he could try to change his ways during the next year and prove that he won't screw up, then I would say maybe. These things are hard to judge unless you actually know the person and what exactly happened.

    Re: Royce White dismissed from High School Team

    He probably got kicked off for taking all those calls from Sampson durring class


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I have absolutely no knowledge of the situation, but I would say that if he did something bad enough to be kicked out of the high school, we'd do best to stay away from him. We don't need talent THAT badly...

    I agree, and that's why I said "maybe." I don't think the "maybe" would hold very good chances.

    I say stay away. We can't risk anything at this point. We are trying to build a program based on integrity from the coaches to the players. Pass.

    I think it all depends on what he did. Right now, i would say don't go after him though.

    Re: Royce White dismissed from High School Team

    maybe all the big schools back off on recruiting him and isu can get him. But there's no chance that mcdermott keeps recruiting him if he keeps getting into trouble

    Unfortunately true, if your a 5 star recruit someone will "make it work" for at least a year.
