UCLA Withdraws Scholarship to Lassiter QB

Trojan Eddie Printz had been committed to the Bruins since January.

The UCLA Bruins have withdrawn their scholarship offer to quarterback Eddie Printz, a move that left both his family and his coach blindsided.

Printz's father Ed had to actively seek out UCLA coaches instead of being told by them, The Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported. 

'I feel like a horse kicked me in the stomach," the elder Printz told the AJC. "And I feel like I let my son down because I let him commit early."

 after dropping his commitment to Southern Methodist University last December.

Lassiter's head football coach was protective of his offensive leader and questioned the integrity of UCLA's recruitment of Printz.

“I really shocked and disappointed with how this went down with UCLA,” Irwin said to the AJC. “They haven’t been genuine and forthright through this whole thing."

This is the second recruit from the Peach State that has been spurned by the Bruins. Months ago, Eagles Landing Christian Academy running back and Bruins commit Keyante Green jumped ship to Purdue because of a lack of contact from UCLA.

That is such a jacked up thing to say. GOD is everywhere and has no school affliation. For you to even suggest that because dropped his committment to Southern does not mean he committed any type of sin against God. Also, it is quite judgmental to think that he abandoned God cause he chose what he thought was the best move for him. You don't know he could have prayed and the Lord told accept UCLA's offer. Its just not for you to say...ijs (I'm Just Sayin')

You are being judgemental and God have nothing to do with it.

NIce artical except, who is Irwin? When you write about something, make sure you fill us in on all the people you are writing about. Dop not throw in a last mane before mentioning their full name earlier in the artical. Irwin is the head football coach but make sure your composing is correct.
