Ocean State University (OSU) signed the top men’s basketball prospect, Pick N. Roll, yesterday. The NLI and accompanying financial aid agreement were signed at 7:00am, and the compliance director emailed the forms to the Ocean Eleven Conference later that day.
As you can see by the picture on the right, this was quite an event. The OSU coach and AD hand delivered the papers to Pick’s house. Present for the signing were Finger Roll and Allee Oop (parents), Dribble Roll (brother), Lobster Roll (sister), I.M. Overzealous (OSU Coach- hat) and IMA Breakin-Rules (OSU Director of Athletics). A local TV station was also on hand for this event.
The first 25 people who properly identify 5 violations from this fact pattern, press release, and picture will win an Ocean State University Orcas hat! This hat could be a collector’s item as OSU is likely headed to the committee on infractions this spring. Tweet the answer using the hashtag #OrcasNLI. One winner per institution will be awarded.
I will follow up with the winner and the violations OSU has committed.
Providence, RI: Top state basketball prospect and Mr. Basketball in Rhode Island signed a National Letter of Intent today at LaFrance High School in Frenchtown, RI. Averaging 29.3 PPG as a power forward, Pick led all scorers in the state last year as a Junior. Coach Overzealous from Ocean State University says ‘Pick will make an immediate impact for the Orcas and is a game changer and his younger brother is a real player too at point guard’. Athletic Director, Breakin-Rules, said ‘We are very pleased to announce the signing of the top prospect in the great state of Rhode Island to play for Coach O and for our loyal fans at Ocean State next year. I sure hope we can sign his very talented sister next year too’. Season tickets for this year are still available to Quahog Arena and the ticket office is open daily from 8-5 on campus.
