I hope the young man will be able to come back next year healthy and will contribute to our success. If the young man shoulders will prevent him from playing again, I believe St. John's could still give him an academic scholarship with other potential grants and aid to keep him as a full time student and use the vacated athletic ship. I believe that's how Rob Thomas finished his last year.




Rob Thomas completed his last year on a basketball scholarship, he just did not play. He was never able to fully recover from his injury.
I can't believe some of the comments about trying to get a scholarship back because a young man got hurt. Loyalty is a two way street. I totally agree with MarkRedman, unless a student athlete does something to embarrass the school or is disruptive to the team, he should retain his scholarship.


I stand corrected. By the way just to be clear, I was advocating other means of a scholarship to replace the athletic scholarship if a player is no longer able to play due to injury, not removing the scholarship and saying "goodbye and get lost".

Any new information on his health (shoulders), progress? He's in the back row of the Instagram photo, but rarely (if ever) mentioned. I see him as a potential x-factor who has flown under the radar because of health issues, as well as excitement over a stellar recruiting class and proven potential of others, e.g., Yakwe. It's been a long road for him, would be a pleasant surprise and nice story.

Agree there must be other options the school has to pay his way
