Been away for a few weeks. So much has happened in the Pac-12. Here’s a few links to get you caught up.
MONDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Per his twitter account, point guard Ahmaad Rorie visited Washington State over the weekend and picked up an offer from Wichita State last week. The four-star recruit from Tacoma’s Lincoln High is also considering Washington.
— It appears as if Oregon coach Dana Altman is safe, but the Ducks have dismissed Dominic Artis, Damyean Dotson and Brandon Austin who were accused of rape, but not charged with a crime.
— Interesting story on how Altman has done business the past four years at Oregon. The Ducks have had 23 players leave the team via transfer. They’ve also welcomed 18 transfers. That’s a lot of coming and going.
— Oregon State is expected to hire a coach this week to replace Craig Robinson. Reported candidates include: former UCLA coach Ben Howland, Arizona assistant Damon Stoudamire and former Portland Trail Blazers great Terry Porter.
— Washington junior forward Desmond Simmons is transferring to Saint Mary’s.
— New California coach Cuonzo Martin picked up a second player when Georgetown sophomore guard Stephen Domingo said he’s transferring to the Bay Area to play for the Golden Bears. Cal also picked up a commitment from incoming freshman Kingsley Okoroh, a 7-1 center from England.
— The Pac-12 is considering tweaking its conference schedule to shorten road trips.
— UCLA is playing Kentucky in Chicago on Dec. 20.
