(P.M. UPDATE: AGAU HAS REPORTEDLY ANNOUNCED THAT HE’S STAYING AT OMAHA CENTRAL FOR HIS SENIOR YEAR.)
As an Omaha basketball fanatic, it crushes me to hear that Akoy Agau may transfer to a Maryland prep school.
He’s likely one of the nation’s top 50 recruits — Nebraska’s first of that caliber in two decades. More important: He’s the anchor of what could be the most dominant team in state history.
(Needless to say, Agau leaving now would basically ruin any hope of Nebraska signing him.)
The situation reeks of an athlete craving attention, a kid who’d rather play on ESPN than stand by his friends and do something nobody in Nebraska has ever done — start on four Class A state championship teams.
Agau, who apparently received some backlash over the weekend, ranted on Twitter Saturday night about how he hates the state. He used words he shouldn’t.
It’s easy to blast the kid for what’s happening.
