Arizona State quarterback Blake Barnett is transferring from the program, a source confirmed to ESPN on Wednesday. Barnett will be a grad transfer and will have two more seasons of eligibility to finish his career.
According to a source, Barnett will visit USF this weekend and is still gauging interest from other programs.
Initially a five-star prospect out of high school in the 2015 class, ranked No. 14 overall, Barnett committed to Notre Dame, decommitted and eventually signed with Alabama. Barnett transferred from Alabama in 2016 after quarterback Jalen Hurts took over as starter for the Tide.
Following the game, Westbrook did not want to discuss how he guarded Rubio.
“It wasn’t about me or him,” he said. “Let’s get past that. We done with that.”
Mitchell set a postseason rookie scoring record for the Jazz, passing Karl Malone, who had 31 points on April 20, 1986, against the Mavericks. Mitchell is the first rookie to have a 30-point playoff game since Brandon Jennings did it in 2010. Mitchell is just the third rookie in the last 50 years to score 110-plus points in his first four playoff games, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Jordan.
“It’s definitely an honor to have a record like that,” Mitchell said. “Definitely an honor. No doubt about that, but we have one more game, so I’m focused on that.”
The tweets cited by Yahoo! Sports were sent in 2012 and 2013, when Allen was in high school.
Allen told Smith that some of the tweets made reference to rap lyrics and television, including a saying that was part of an episode from the sitcom “Modern Family.”
On ESPN’s First Take on Thursday, NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported that his sources indicated Allen’s Twitter account was vetted in January and that the offensive tweets were removed then.
Allen is ranked as the top quarterback in the draft, according to ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., and is projected by many to be selected by the Cleveland Browns with the first overall pick.
A team with a top-five draft pick told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that it knew nothing about the tweets and that it had “never heard anything but positives” about Allen.
Ray was disappointed he wasn’t able to earn the victory, especially since he felt like he had his pitches working.
“I’m frustrated from the results, not the execution,” he said. “Definitely something to build on.”
Lovullo wanted to get Ray through the fifth, but ultimately long innings prevented that from happening.
“Those are hard situations to walk through for me,” Lovullo said.
