Marquette releases center Aaron Durley from letter of intent

Apr 21, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT


There was no coaching change, as we will many times see in the “spring transfer season,” but there will be another change at Marquette.

The Associated Press is reporting that Marquette head coach Buzz Williams has agreed to release Texas native Aaron Durley from his letter of intent and allow him to sign with another school.

Durley is a 6-10 center from Fort Bend Bush (Tex.) who was being recruited by programs that include Chattanooga and South Florida before his commitment to Marquette.

The rather routine practice of releasing players from letters of intent or allowing current players to transfer has been under scrutiny lately, as Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan restricted forward Jerrod  Uthoff from transferring to a number of institutions.

Marquette now has three players signed to its program from the Class of 2012, including Top 100 guard Steve Taylor.

    That’s it? A player gets run off and it’s no big deal? Where’s the outrage over this? Is this going to be an issue on Mike and Mike?

    This is routine? Running a guy off your program after he signs a LOI is routine? Really.
