Here’s a troubling and sad story from the Syracuse Post Standard about former Peekskill star Mookie Jones, who said he’s “done playing at Syracuse.”
The senior-to-be was suspended a year by the university after another student accused him of cyberbullying last fall. The suspension would put Jones’ eligibility as a student-athlete in jeopardy and bring a sad ending to his disappointing Syracuse career.
Jones left the team and the university this winter. He was highly recruited out of high school, but has played sparingly in three seasons with the Orange. An injury forced Jones to redshirt as a true freshman and he never became a regular member of the rotation.
