A player can request a release from the school he signed a LOI. The school has the option of releasing him or not. If the school doesn't release him, he can still go to another school but would lose a year of eligibility.

In any event, he doesn't want to be here so let him go.

OT and TE are definitely more immediate needs and now we have another scholarship available.

I concur with all of the above sentiments. This young man has problems making up his mind. Probably would have been a portal transfer sooner rather that later, even if he did enroll in school.
Cats don't have owners. Cats have servants.

The all DB defense post made me think that an average OL and RB would look like Ron Dayne running up the middle through the holes made by the Wisconsin OL against UH. He had over 300 yards that night. Probably the most helpless and sickest feeling I had as a fan.

Those Wisconsin OLs are always top notch and open big holes against most defenses. They are huge, powerful and nimble.
