I'd bail too if I was a high level recruit (I'm not) who had bought into Wahlberg's special plan. That resignation still mystifies me. To many unexplained things to sudden. The violations didn't even seem that egregious,
not to justify the sudden departure. I wonder how that makes Wahlberg's son feel who transferred to Pepperdine just to play for his dad. Hmmm...?:confused:

for McDonalds all American. I bet his 4 star stock had something to do with wanting to change his mind about Pepperdine. Brandon Armstrong of Pepperdine got drafted to the NBA about 8-9 years ago. Didn't last long though.

not that BT isn't good, but aren't there something like 500 players each year that are MDAA "nominees"?

Will Foster was a McDonald's AA nominee....yes, it's a very large list:

Tinsley is a legit top 100 player...but he isn't going to be a Burger Boy.

Think Grier has a shot at getting BT? If his stock is truly on the rise, then perhaps he'll end up at a Pac-10 school.

fwiw, quote from article linked above:



..."It's a done deal," Carl Tinsley said. "We are going to re-open the recruiting process and see what other schools are interested."

When Brad Tinsley committed to Pepperdine in August, he also was considering California and Utah...

...Carl Tinsley said last summer that Virginia, Vanderbilt and Colorado were among the other schools offering his son scholarships...

:rolleyes:

So Pepp's recent NBA track record is that bad? 3-Star Diawara is doing just fine in the NBA ... And I have to imagine Acker will be making his way back to the mainland shortly. Very few WCC schools have recent grads in this situation.

Pepperdine has a proud history in basketball, it is sad that the powers that be have mucked it up.

He is averaging less than 3 points a game. I was not bad mouthing Pepperdines history I was just saying that Brad probably knows that Pepperdine (especially now) is not the best stepping stone into the NBA. Pepperdine is a great school and Brad should stay there unless he feels that he was misled by his recruiters. If I had a choice of any SoCal school it would be in Malibu. Nothing wrong with surfing and babe watching on the beach between classes.

Wasn't Doug Christie a Wave? He was a good NBA player.

He has had a better career than any Zag in the NBA other than Stockton. He was drafted in 1993 I think. He even had his own TV show on BET called the "The Christies Committed". Way to go thickman.
