The Internet was filled with rumors yesterday that Kendric Price, a redshirt sophomore forward, was off the basketball team. Basically, the rumor was that he was off the team and hadn’t even practiced yet due to other reasons. It’s got nothing to do with legal trouble or anything like that, but simply is due to performance.
The rumors actually got so rampant that Tom Wywrot, a U-M sports information director, had to announce that he was still with the team and simply was having a meeting with John Beilein about his future with the team.
Just because Price isn’t off the team right now doesn’t mean he might not be by this time next week. I would keep an eye on this as Michigan could end up having an extra scholarship for the 2009 recruiting class.
