I am always suprised when someone would receive a free education just to play basketball would give it up. I realize their is a time committment involved but unless your parents are going to pay your way anyhow you would need a job which would require a greater amount of time to even come close to the $10,000 per year of tuition. Maybe when he graduates with his 10-20,000 in debt he might realize hoops couldn't be that bad. If he didn't like that school or coach he was recruited enough to have other options.

College BB is a full time commitment. From the day you startr school your Freshman year you are in the weightroom everyday and running everyday and Practice doesn't start until mid OCt. Personally I think he should have gone to a local college

How much fun is it flipping hamburgers to pay for your education. I hear "not having fun" often these days. If you play a game since 3rd grade how can it not be fun anymore. I understand the committment of lifting etc. Many people do this every day just to stay in shape. Not because they have to. Something to enhance your college experience learning some lifelong lessons which cannot be taught in a classroom would seem like something fun to do. Just my thoughts. This is not a attack on him because everything I have heard about him is he is a good kid.

Well college athletics take a lot of time in the average athletes day. One of my friends plays for the UW football team and freshman are gien crappy everything, so lifting is at 6 am for him. Then after that, all of his classes are between then and 2 pm. After that there's practice and film sessions. Finally he have the rest of the night to himself around 7 and obviously needs about an hour of down hour just to recover and then start working on homework and studying which would take you to 11 or midnight.

In short, playing sports in college is as bad or worse than a job when speaking time constraints. I completely understand him stopping. And it's probably hard to adjust from being the best player on your team (and usually on the court) to being average.
