McMillan has not yet acquired the NCAAÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s academic qualifying standards and is still working toward meeting those. Ã¢â‚¬Å“IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m disappointed he wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be attending USF,Ã¢â‚¬Â Heath said. As a senior at St. BenedictÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Prep in New Jersey, the 6-foot McMillan was rated the nationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 57th best point guard by ESPN.com. He averaged 17 points, eight assists, five rebounds and two steals as a senior at St. BenedictÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Prep, which finished No. 2 in USA TodayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s national rankings. The loss of McMillan opens another scholarship for this season, but Heath said the Bulls will likely not fill it at this late date and put it toward next season. USFÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s other signed recruits - guard Gaby Belardo, center Alex Rivas Sanchez, forward Eugene Teague Jr. and forward Eladio Espinosa - are set to begin summer school next week. Also, guard Mike Mercer, who transfered from Georgia last year, will be eligible for USF in December. And Maryland transfer Gus Gilchrist also is expected to start summer school next week, but is still waiting on an NCAA appeal ruling to determine if he can play this season or will have to sit out a transfer year. And finally - talk about burying the lead - it appears Teeng Akol, the 6-11 center/forward from the Sudan who committed to USF but still hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t officially signed is only a few days away from officially signing with USF (i.e. getting all of his academics approved). Akol spent the past season at the IMG Academy in Bradenton. He would be eligible to play this season. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
