Twyman Has to Wait On Ball State

Caught up with Sherwood Athletic Director Bob Cilento recently to talk about All-Met guard Deontay Twyman. Twyman signed late with Ball State and completed a session of summer school only to have Ronny Thompson resign last month as the school's coach. Cilento said that Twyman asked the school for a release from his scholarship so that he could pursue a transfer, but that request was denied.

"They want to name a new coach before he does anything," Cilento said. "They want to give the new coach a chance to talk to them. I can't imagine them not granting it when they do, but he's in limbo right now for a few weeks.

"The kids are very trapped, it's kind of unfair, really. I don't know what else he can do. He tried to see the president, but she wouldn't see him. It's going to be very, very late to do something else. Other schools can't even talk to him. It's a bad situation. We'll sit and wait and hope they name that coach quick."
