Check out this guy @danwolken on twitter. All you can say about this guy...
Is the objection that because of their APR sanctions, UConn shouldn't have been recruiting because they were at their scholarship limit? Or is it because they are asking someone to give up their scholarship for another player?
If it is the former, then my point would be that Drummond was a 2012 recruit and seemingly only recently (between now and his WMA announcement) decided to re-reclassify.
If it is the latter - doesn't this happen on nearly every competitive campus each year? Coaches encourage players to "transfer" because they don't see as bright of a future as they may see in an incoming player or recruit. A recent example being that there was no outrage when JCMD transferred to Hofstra, despite earning himself respectable amounts of playing time on a National Championship team because he was not the right fit for the Huskies, yet because Drummond is a blue chip - there is outcry. The main difference I see is just the speed in which this has transpired - and while regretful, it's not unprecedented at all.
