Within the past few weeks there have been some happenings on the Idaho State roster, and they are not positive for this year's team.
- It seems as promising recruit Marcus Bradley did not qualify academically, and will miss at least the first semester. It is possible he could join the team in the second semester, but would possibly redshirt if that happened. He is no longer listed on ISU's roster.
- The word is that forward Andre Slavik and Ben Wilson possibly played in unauthorized overseas tournaments, costing them each a year of eligibility. Slavik in particular looked like he could be an impact post, and Wilson was a good glue guy.
- Senior forward Nnamdi Ezenwa appears to be redshirting. Not entirely sure why at this point.
I was projecting Bradley to be a starter up front, but it wouldn't have been a surprise to see Slavik start some games as well. Those are big losses for the Bengals this season.
ISU fans, thoughts? Are you hearing the same things regarding these guys?

Tonight on the coaches radio show, Coach Evans said the NCAA is requiring Slavik and Wilson to redshirt. He also said he promised Ezenwa that he would redshirt him, but I have no idea what that's all about. Maybe he'll talke Ezenwa out of the redshirt?ReplyDelete
