Allerik is a fine young man with a tremendous future ahead of him. My coaching staff and I are supportive of his decision, and we feel that a mutual parting of ways is the best solution. I wish Allerik nothing but the best as he begins his collegiate career next fall.
Okay then. But right now we have no idea if any viable recruit/transfer is going to come in to provide depth in the program (not sure we can count Alford Jr, who had no scholarship offers from another D-1 program besides New Mexico a viable recruit).
But here is punchline on the release (which was corrected in excerpt above) shared by Wang:
Steve Alford's official statement on Allerik Freeman's release from NLI also misspells his name as "Allerick."— Jack Wang (@thejackwang) April 25, 2013
Amateur hour by Alford and his staff. Pathetic.
