Scholarship Offer Revoked, Player Sues College
Here's a new twist to a new coach yanking a prospect's scholarship offer. A Boise, Idaho, high school senior is suing the University of Hawaii and one of its former assistant football coaches after his offer was pulled. The player, Daniel Smith, alleges that the assistant coach told him not to even speak to other schools after being offered a scholarship last April only to learn that all offers had been revoked after former Warriors coach June Jones left for Southern Methodist after this past season.
"I kept my end of the deal," Smith told the Associated Press. "I want the university to keep its end of the deal."
Can't see how Smith wins this one, as this seems to be happening more and more frequently - but I'm sure coaches and colleges all over will watch the see how this case is resolved.
