Today in the Morning Rumble, Chris Mullin puts his Los Angeles condo up for sale, Frank Jackson commits to Duke and UConn lands another top-100 recruit.
St. John's new head coach, Chris Mullin, has put his 1,400 square foot Los Angeles condominium on the market for $1.55 million. The Hall of Famer originally bought the property for $1.5 million but he also maintains a house in Danville, Calif with his wife.
Duke's 2016 recruiting class is projected to be loaded after Coach Mike Krzyzewski landed five-star small forward Jayson Tatum earlier in the summer. They backed up the expectations on Tuesday night by receiving a commit from one of the top point guards and playmakers in the class, Frank Jackson.
Jackson, who is ranked 14th out of 100 on ESPN's recruiting list, chose the Blue Devils over Stanford, Utah and UCLA.
Duke will remain in the mix for big man Harry Giles but it now seems unlikely that they land point guard Dennis Smith Jr. as rising freshman Derryck Thornton is expected to hand the backcourt duties along with Jackson.
Kevin Ollie has been terrific this summer in terms of recruiting and the Huskies received a pledge from another talented player on Tuesday night. Juwan Durham, a 4-star prospect from Tampa, Florida, will be joining Alterique Gilbert and Mamadou Diarra in Storrs in 2016 as he chose the Huskies over Temple, Kansas State, Minnesota and VCU.
Durham is extremely long, mobile and skilled while also having a knack for grabbing rebounds and blocking shots in a timely manner.
Indiana head coach Tom Crean is finished with the off-the-court distractions and he let his student-athletes know he means business by releasing Emmitt Holt.
This was Holt's second alcohol related incident in the past two years and he certainly wasn't providing the team enough production on the court, 3.6 points and 3.0 rebounds per game.
Pittsburgh Panthers head coach Jamie Dixon added JUCO combo guard Jonathan Milligan to the team on Tuesday. Milligan, who received interest from North Carolina State, Tennessee, Creighton and Marquette, will provide experience to a young backcourt that lost Josh Newkirk to Indiana earlier this offseason.
With James Robinson and Sterling Smith running out of eligibility following this season, Milligan will provide veteran leadership and scoring ability to a group that will consist of Cameron Johnson, Damon Wilson and Chris Jones.
Coastal Carolina, a regular participant in the NCAA Tournament, will be leaving the Big South to join the Sun Belt in all sports (except football) starting in 2016. The Chanticleers finished 24-9 last year and failed to defeat Wisconsin in the second round of the NCAA Tournament as a 16 seed.
