Here’s what Renardo Sidney Sr. said of UCLA’s recruitment of his son. There has been speculation that UCLA had backed off Sidney this week, though UCLA has not, and cannot comment upon such speculation.
“I don’t know where the pulling out part came from, we never committed to UCLA. People are blowing that out of proportion. UCLA has to do what’s best for UCLA and we have to do what’s best for Renardo,” he said.
So I followed up with, “So are you saying that UCLA never told you it was ending its recruitment of Renardo?”
“Not to my knowledge,” he said. “We never committed to them, so why would they have to pull out.”
I’ve walked in the door here at Fairfax High to what I thought was a press conference to announce where Renardo Sidney Jr. is committing to play basketball in college next year and a banquet broke out.
Seriously, the entire gym is decorated and full of fans, teammates and families. There is a catered dinner in the back, and a full program outlining the events of the evening.
