Last week, 2011 PG, Naadir Tharpe de-committed from Providence and Keno Davis and now 2010 Top 100 guard, Joe Young is looking to do the same…and has yet to receive his release…
“Joe Young signed a National Letter of Intent… and we expect that he will honor that commitment,” Providence coach Keno Davis said.
Naturally, the Young family isn’t too happy about this. Michael Young, the player’s father, insists the request is thanks to his sister’s recent series of open-heart surgeries:
“We’re concerned about my sister,” Michael Young said. “Sports and basketball, it is what it is. If that can work out and he’s able to stay close to home and play this year, fine. Right now, we’re done to talking to Providence. We have nothing else to talk about. Providence as we can see is not family. We put family first.”
