Altidor-Cespedes, Burgess leaving GU


Steve Bergum has confirmed a report on that Pierre Marie Altidor-Cespedes and David Burgess are leaving Gonzaga.

However, Fox’s Jeff Goodman, had it wrong when he reported Altidor-Cespedes would be able to play next year if he graduates this spring. Goodman reported that Altidor-Cespedes was grandfathered into the NCAA rule allowing that, a rule that was changed recently. According to GU, that’s incorrect. The rule no longer exists, and P-Mac will have to sit if he wants to play Division I hoops.

For more on the departures, check Bergum’s Gonzaga blog.

The Bulldogs had recruited more players than there were scholarships available, so the two defections are already filled.
