So I guess now we’ll see what kind of “culture” that Larry is really bringing to Utah.
If you’ve been looking for stats on Utah commit Justin Seymour and can’t find them, there is a reason. Justin was declared academically ineligible for the season at his high school in Wheeler, GA. A message board reports he has transferred to a private school in North Carolina. And a tweets from the coach at the school which he describes as,
M.A.C.K. Prep Elite Training Academy. A Prep/Post Grad program developing the next class of Division 1 student-athletes!!
says that Justin has scored in double figures there at least twice.
Now first I want to say, I hope that Justin gets the academics straightened out. In Finding Forrester, Sean Connery said something like, “Don’t Fuck Up Your Life By Being 17.”
And I would love for Justin to join Utah, in two years after some time at Junior College to make sure he’s on track.
But this transfer smells fishy. And doing this then bringing the kid to Utah under these circumstances feels like setting the kid up for failure.
It will be interesting to see where this falls in Larry’s world of “culture change.”
