POTW – Releases of Letters of Intent

leave a comment »

I missed last weeks “Piece of the Week” due to the Easter holiday, but I’m back this week with the third installment. For new visitors here’s a quick recap of what the POTW feature entails. POTW is a weekly Friday feature where we share an interesting, well-written, compelling sports article from the week. Not necessarily a piece that got the most publicity, just something that you or I enjoyed reading.

So, click the submit “Piece of the Week” link on the right and send me your favorite article throughout the week. It could get chosen as the “Piece of the Week”. Of course, if the article or blog post you send in gets chosen you’ll get a shout-out, so include your name, location and Twitter handle (if you have one).

This week’s POTW is a USA Today feature by Jeff Zillgitt delving into the world of college basketball recruiting. Zillgitt addresses one of the hot topics right now, recruits that have signed LOI’s receiving easy releases when their coach leaves for another job.  Zillgitt looks specifically at the some of the players affected by John Calipari’s move from Memphis to Kentucky, as well as UAB denying DeMarcus Cousins, one of the top players in the class of 2009, a easy release if coach Mike Davis left the program.

It’s a very interesting read if you’re into the world of college basketball recruiting. Enjoy, and please send along some interesting sports related articles you’ve read this week.
