This Site is for Guys Like You, Steven Wesley

Now that word has come out that Steven Wesley did not have grade issues and did not violate "unspecified team rules" you have to wonder why he won't be reporting to fall camp for Miami this year.  Actually, no you don't.  It's simple.  Miami was in a numbers crunch because they OVERSIGNED their class this year and then with the late additions of Latwan Anderson and Seantrel Henderson they had to do something in order to free up scholarship space.

We don't have an account on the Miami message boards, but if any of you do and would like to share the general buzz from the fans please do so in the comments section. 

According to his facebook page, Wesley was all set to go to fall camp - all indications are at this point that his dismissal from the team was unexpected.   As posted here from one of our readers...

Per Steven Wesley Facebook:

Steven Wesley: "To clear all the rumors no im not academicly inelgible nor did i get kicked off the team for any off the field issues,its more to it then that but if you dont have nothing good to say about people you dont say nothing at all so ill leave it at that. But i wont be playing football at the U next season but i appreciate all the support from the fans that was given."

This makes two guys in just a couple of weeks that have been flat out sent packing because of scholarship numbers where the schools, LSU and Miami, were both guilty of oversigning.  

Best of luck Steven, we sure hope you find somewhere to finish your college education and get your degree.  We created this site so that guys like you wouldn't get screwed like you did.  Hopefully one day the rules will change and schools will no longer be able to oversign and push players out simply because they want to make room for the next big recruit.  The University Presidents and Athletic Directors that allow this to happen should be ashamed of themselves - they are supposed to be in the business of educating kids, not running farm teams for the NFL.
