What’s up with Brockman? Other notes

My “official” furlough for this week is over (there are still a couple more days to come) and the time away meant I couldn’t delve immediately into the mystery of why Jon Brockman wasn’t at the NBA Combine.
I have made some calls since then to people who would normally know that sort of thing — and people who do know — but nobody is saying or talking. I had all questions referred to his agent, who isn’t returning calls. My assumption is that it’s not an injury or anything of that sort — seems like that would get out eventually, anyway — but more along the lines of agent posturing (maybe some sort of deal in place somewhere else?) Anyway, it’s definitely interesting that no one wants to say, though again, I don’t know that means it has to be something bad.
I did get a few other items worth passing along in the process, however:
— Yesterday was the last day for spring individual workouts with players. College basketball now enters about its deadest time of the year with players focusing on finishing up school, then taking a little break, before most will return in a few weeks for summer school and the freshman bridge program.
Tyreese Breshers is still not 100 percent but is going to be able to play in in a few weeks, when his road to returning will begin in earnest.
Darnell Gant is recovering from a fracture in the pelvis area and has been out for the last month or so. But he should be ready to play in a few weeks when the team will return for the summer.
— All of the newcomers remain on track to qualify, including Charles Garcia Jr. So no surprises expected in that area.
Joe Wolfinger has not yet picked a new school but is expected to do so in the next few weeks.
— Also, for those who asked, I’m not putting softball or golf or anything on the football and basketball blogs. We are giving lots of coverage to those sports on our main web site and in the print edition of the paper. But I’m not covering any of those sports this season so I have nothing personally to add in any way, and so I’ll leave the coverage of those to our web site and newspaper. However, we have had lots of coverage there.
All for now.
