I'm going to make another prediction based on McKinley Boston's comments on Tuesday regarding Tyrone Watson's suspension.
Here is the story on Watson appealing his suspension with NMSU.
Here are two comments from Boston that have me believing that Watson will return to the basketball court at some point this season.
“He can’t practice with the team but I haven’t made the determination if he can travel with the team or not,” Boston said.
“The history of these, I have accepted the committee’s recommendation,” Boston said. “Once they make a recommendation, I then will either accept or reject it. At that point, if I don’t accept the recommendation, the suspension will continue.”
Why would Watson travel with the team on Wednesday if there wasn't a real possibility the suspension could be lifted sometime this week? If he were to be re-instated, he could probably catch a flight to San JOse or Utah to meet up with the team at that point.
I think if we are all realistic, we know the felony charge won't stick. I'm sure there was more detailed accounts from Watson's lawyer on Tuesday to that effect, not to mention other accounts that Watson has been a good student with no disturbances throughout a five year career. All things the committee could consider moving forward in Watson's favor.
