    Honestly, is anyone surprised about that?

    Honestly, probably best for us in the long run. He seemed like troubled. Nick Richards, here we come.

    Not shocking. Hope the best for the kid. He's been through a lot already at such a young age.

    Hopefully this means that KO is on track to get someone who is more stable

    OH WELL, back to the drawing board. Need some muscle down there.

    I completely understand why this has happened, but it's a bummer that we get one of the top-ranked bigs, though his stock seems to be falling of late, then to have it blow up. Hopefully KO will land a solid big man in 2017.

    F.. Kt f.. K sht why can't we have a big man with size? Is Enoch going to be the only one with size in 2017? Durham Diarra and Enoch are a good tandem on paper. But I'd like one more strong big incase Enoch gets in foul trouble.

    I appreciate them reporting this as a mutual parting of ways instead of a decommitment, as it pretty much confirms that KO and UConn aren't really interested in him anymore.

    Size doesn't matter too much when the player is as raw as Brown is. He just looks awkward sometimes. Nick Richards is lean but can add muscle and is an amazing defender, it sucks but its not the worst thing in the world.

    Hope he does well, but I'm glad that a decision was made sooner rather than later if it was going to be made.

    I'm going to be very interested to see where Brown ends up playing when it is all said and done.

    Seemed like there was one too many red flags for the staff to continue with him.

    I'm wondering if he stays down in Florida. Seems like it may be a distance issue.

    This had about a five percent chance of working out. Once he was booted from Putnam, that dropped to somewhere near zero.

    Not surprised by this but really wishing the best for the kid. The Vice video gave me some questionable vibes from his guardian but Zach seemed like a really good kid who's just trying to do the right thing.

    I was optimistic about his future with us but I'm not shocked by the result.

    I think them attending games for every other big man in the class of 2017 during the last contact period was as good an indication as any that they had already moved on.

    What are the chances he had some very bad chemistry with some of the PSA player's we have/are recruiting?

    OK, is this good or bad or indifferent?
