POCATELLO,Idaho- Idaho State men's basketball coach Joe O'Brien has announced that Kameron Pearce has left the program and voluntarily withdrawn from Idaho State as a student due to personal reasons.Idaho State was already reportedly still recruiting players for this year (and just signed Vishal Banipal within the last 2 weeks), so the loss of anyone hurts right now. Add to it that Kameron Pearce could have been a starter and looked like he could be a solid contributor for the next 3 years, and this is a blow to the program.
It is another hit for Coach Joe O'Brien, who from all accounts is coaching for his job this season. The loss of guys like Pearce will not make matters any easier, that is for sure. If I hear more, obviously I will update.
I know there are quite a few Idaho State fans that read this blog (if you don't believe me, check out the poll to the right)... Have you guys heard anything more about this?
