    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!

    Go Bulldogs! Get Bigger!
    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
