Iowa State Releases Johnson To Eight Schools
AMES, Iowa – The Iowa State University Athletics Department has granted former men’s basketball player Wesley Johnson a release for eight schools.
Coach Greg McDermott and Director of Athletics Jamie Pollard had multiple conversations with Johnson and his mother last weekend. McDermott and Pollard shared the department’s normal release protocol, which does not allow releases to other Big 12 institutions or schools on any future men’s basketball schedules.
“Although we are disappointed in the way Wesley handled his departure, Greg and I both believe that following our normal release protocol is the appropriate action in this situation,” Pollard said.
As a result of those discussions, Wesley Johnson submitted a list of schools that met our department’s guidelines. Those schools are: Arkansas, Connecticut, Marquette, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Villanova and West Virginia.
