History in the making as far as recruiting goes. That is, a 5-star recruit going to a HBCU.

It's just a publicity thing. He's going to the G-League. Maybe if something goes awry and he can't play in the G-League he'll be forced to play for Howard lol? That would be interesting to see.
Btw Bobcat what’s the latest on your coach- you guys could be on the other side of the current issues and start losing players and recruits if a change isn’t made.

From what I've read on our board it seems like we're gonna keep him. When I first read the tweets I wanted him to be gone yesterday thinking that the longer we kept him the more damage would be done to our program. I definitely expected more players to come out and make similar statements and there were a few more but there were 10x more that came out in support of Coach Kaspar. I don't want to call the players tweet about his treatment sour grapes but he was also going to go from starting PG to 3rd string had he stayed. If Kaspar is in fact staying then hopefully the positive endorsements from many of his former players will offset any negative effects that all of this has brought, and hopefully he will have learned a lesson and clean up any speech that could be considered racially insensitive.

Regardless it's a tough situation for our AD. It's basically a lose lose for us. Do we appeal to the modern climate and fire a guy who has turned our basketball program from terrible to solid over one former player's tweets? Do we keep him and potentially ruin our program's future from negative optics (this could potentially spill over and affect other sports as well)? We'll see what happens....
