Higgins (already) out at New Mexico State

Posted on: September 24, 2008 10:23 pm
 

Johnny Higgins is leaving New Mexico State before he ever played a game.

"He's going to transfer," Higgins' former AAU coach, Anthony Lewis, told CBSSports.com by phone. "He's transferring to New Mexico Junior College."

Though Lewis said he had no knowledge of an incident, a source told CBSSports.com that Higgins was involved in a physical altercation that precipitated this development. Reached by phone late Wednesday, New Mexico State coach Marvin Menzies declined comment but said the school did plan to make a Thursday morning announcement about Higgins, a 6-2 point guard who played at Notre Dame Prep last season.

Higgins signed with New Mexico State in May.

You can't describe it as a sinking ship until you see the rats jumping ship too.

I said "top recruit" and I meant from last year.

Their top recruit left about a month ago.  Now Higgins is gone.  Another player pled "no contest" today in court.  Looks like everyone is jumping from a sinking ship.
