Sophomore guard Will Bynum's recent departure for Georgia Tech was predicted by some, yet still surprising to others. That aside, the fact is that this is not an anomaly for the UA men's hoops program.
Currently, Including Bynum, four former Wildcats circulate among the college ranks.
That means that four high school studs that Lute's staff spent hours with, making recruiting trips, phone calls, offering scholarships and enticing with the thought of championships, are looming at other schools, not even taking a second glance back. It doesn't concern them that while the NCAA forces the UA, and every other member institution, to honor their commitments to student-athletes, those athletes themselves have no true obligation to the school that took a chance on them.
