Newsline: WSU blocks Izundu transfer to SDSU

VALENTINE IZUNDU CAN block shots, but Ernie Kent has blocked him from transferring to SDSU, Mark Zeigler of the San Diego Tribune writes.

A three-person faculty appeals committee at Washington State upheld Ernie Kent’s conditional release of Izundu, a senior-to-be, that prevents him from transferring to SDSU amid allegations of "tampering."

“The committee decided to uphold the athletic department and Coach Kent’s decision to deny permission to contact San Diego State University,” said an email from the committee to the various parties. “The committee felt that tampering has taken place (improper communication through a third party) and that was the key factor in the decision.”

"SDSU coach Steve Fisher was unavailable for comment, but it seems odd that his staff would prematurely pursue a player who averaged 3.8 points and 2.7 rebounds last season for a Cougars team that went 1-17 in the Pac-12 and is headed to his third school," read the article.
