Kennedy Gets Big News

Head Ole Miss basketball coach Andy Kennedy received big news this weekend according to several sources. It is being reported that Macolm White has been cleared to play basketball for the Rebels next year. White is a 6'8, 220 lb power forward that should make an impact on the court beginning next year. White is a top 100 player on several recruiting sites on the internet. Following White's academic history is a bit complicated. The only known factor is that it appeared White was going to have to attend prep school next year and not be able to sign with an NCAA school.

While this is not been officially published by UMAA, everywhere that I read it is a done deal. Hopefully it will be official soon and if it is this is another reason why Ole Miss fans should get behind this basketball program. I am a big believer in Andy Kennedy and what he has in store for the future of the program, I just hope a few "decision makers" don't mess it up.
