A report from the Sporting News less than two hours ago states that 7'4" center Sim Bhullar has decommitted from Xavier in favor of New Mexico State. Quotes inside the story suggest that it was a combination of family and issues with Bhullar's being a Canadian that led to the switch. Should more information come available, we'll update but, for now, it seems Coach Mack has another scholarship to work with. This could, potentially, re-open the hunt D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera or another player that seems a more natural fit in our system.
We've previously discussed Bhullar's strengths and weaknesses, who plays the five in our current scheme, and why Bhullar was a good fit for Xavier.
