His story was the lead story in WAPO's sports section today:

Thanks for the link. This quote stood out:

"There's no logical reason for Lance not to have been recruited and go somewhere," said Sonny Vaccaro, a person of nearly unmatched influence on the youth basketball scene and a confidant of the Stephenson family..."

What more could you want in a recruit? The kid appears to be a bit of a head case. His father is (reportedly) a P. I. T. A., and Sonny Vaccaro is a "confidant of the Stephenson family". And for good measure the Washington Post article says that he has been charged with misdemeanor sexual assault for allegedly "groping" a 17 year old girl.

Kids make mistakes but this kid sounds like a one-man train wreck waiting to arrive on the campus of an NCAA program. No thanks!
