2012 men’s basketball recruit Anthony Clemmons decommits, maybe
Well, this just seems kind-of flaky. Just a week after announcing his verbal commitment to EMU and saying some nice things about the direction of the program under Rob Murphy, it seems that Anthony Clemmons has decommitted. The only sources I’m seeing for this so far are an article on Scout’s Iowa site and this tweet from Finley Fuller of The Mid-Michigan Prep News (which may be referring to the Scout article), while other sources (e.g. ESPN, Rivals) still list him as an EMU commitment. It’s possible that ESPN and Rivals just haven’t updated their sites, or it’s possible that the reports are wrong.
If he has decommitted, I think he’s hoping to get an offer from Iowa or another Big Ten program. Some reports said that Iowa had offered before he announced for EMU, but other reports suggested that he had just gotten interest from the Hawkeyes with no offer yet. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more about this as the day progresses, so stay tuned for updates.
