UCLA Drops Renardo Sidney

The LA Times reports:

With highly touted Fairfax High big man Renardo Sidney set to announce the college of his choice on Sunday, it appears that UCLA has dropped out of the running, sources said.

As recently as a few days ago, the Bruins were thought to be a frontrunner to sign the 6-foot-11 senior, who is widely considered to rank among the 10 top prep players in the nation.

There was some question about whether Sidney, who has not taken the SAT, could qualify academically. But little more than 48 hours from his announcement, it was not confirmed why the Bruins lost interest. The sources who said UCLA was out of the picture required anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Sidney might now be headed across town to USC. Sidney and his parents met Wednesday with USC Coach Tim Floyd, Athletic Director Mike Garrett and two other school officials. A source with knowledge of the situation who asked to not be identified said Sidney is very interested in the Trojans.

That makes more sense because the Trojies can always come up with some kind of "deal"

BTW I find it bizarre that an athletic director has to meddle into a basketball coach's recruiting meetings. When was the last time you heard DG teaming up with Howland to meet basketball recruits?

GO BRUINS.
