    Re: WJ has contacted Kentucky...

    I thought that other staffs can't talk with him until he is released from his scholarship? He can contact them I'm sure but I would think that would violate some NCAA rules and be considered tampering if he is still under scholarship at ISU.

    Or maybe. . .

    Johnson? , Johnson? , Johnson? . . .

    Ms. Cleo: Oh he'll be a Wildcat. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Wesley shooting hoops out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

    Re: WJ has contacted Kentucky...

    Even if he calls them, it's against the rules from my understanding. He cannot talk to them until school actually starts. Anything else would be against the NCAA rules and should subject Kentucky to violations.


    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.

    Re: WJ has contacted Kentucky...

    Wes can call them, they can't make ANY contact with him. When he calls they have to tell them that he is under scholarship with another school and untill he isn't granted a release they cannot talk to him. This is SUPPOSED to be the end of conversation. Kentucky then knows that he has interest and can push ISU to release him and start things on their side but still cant contact Wes.

    Re: WJ has contacted Kentucky...

    Under normal circumstances I'd probably be cool with immediately releasing someone from their scholarship but in this situation and how inconsiderate Wesley was in his timing I kind of hope we don't release him and make him have to fight for it. Like Mac said on M&M, if he is not released from his scholarship he'll have to surface on someone's campus and pay his own way next year until he becomes eligible to play. Had he made this known he was unhappy earlier and decided to transfer not long after the season like others have this wouldn't be such a hard thing to do. But at some point you have to stand up for your program and not let people do this and I think this may be that time to do that.

    I believe you are 100% correct. He can call them all he wants but they can only say that they cannot speak to him while he is under his scholarship through next May, if he isn't released from it before then. Any conversations beyond that are violations.

    And I'm sure this is exactly how Billy Gillespie will handle it.

    Yet, we all know if they are talking...nothing will come of it.
