I hope my sarcasm came through on the headline a little bit. Cougfan.com says we're after big man Steven Bjornstad, a 6-10 senior who has already signed a letter of intent with Nevada. He wants out; Nevada says no. (Stop me if you've heard this before.)
This doesn't make sense for next year on a number of levels, which is why I left it off the front page. If Nevada was going to let him out, they probably would have done so already. Second, even if they do, we have no scholarships. We just gave a scholarship to Charlie Enquist, so unless there's an imminent transfer we don't know about (all indications are against that), this seems far fetched.
It's a premium story, so I don't know what exactly the coach is saying, but I can speculate about Bone's motives. My guess? They're trying to get in with the guy so that if he decides to go to prep school they'll be on his radar next year.
