Renardo Sidney signs with Mississippi State.
Renardo Sidney pegged as the #1 pick in 2010 NBA draft has signed with the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Sidney, previously announced he would sign with USC, but the Trojans recently backed off as well as UCLA a couple of weeks earlier. USC, backed off because Sidney’s father supposely wanted money from them. USC, has already had a long list of recruiting violations by the NCAA after incidents with OJ Mayo and Reggie Bush and didn”t want more violations involving Sidney. But USC’s loss is Mississippi’s gain. Sidney is seen as the best player in the country, many compare him to Kevin Garnett. He is also a hometown hero growing up in Mississippi before coming to southern California to play for Artestia High school. Sidney should propel the Bulldogs in the national spot night. Sidney, along with returning star player Jarvis Varnado and former projected lottery pick John Riek should make the Bulldogs have a tournament run. Good job Rick Stansbury.
