It appears that Wright has been kicked out of Bosco.




EDIT: Confirmed


VarsityAces Record/Herald-News

Just got it confirmed that Bosco DB Yuri Wright was expelled from school and that it all has to do with his Twitter feed.

If true, the superintendent at Bosco has obviously never worked for Ohio's compliance department!  I hope the kid gets his act together and makes something of his abilities.

If he needs to get laid so often he should just become a porn star.  Sounds like he's got some serious issues.  We don't need that kind of baggage for sure.  Hopefully someone will get through to this young man.

Even if that is all he cares about, he really didn't think this one through.  I have to think the ladies he could get as a college athlete are much better than the ones he'll get as an unemployed, uneducated 20 year old... So young and foolish..

In all seriousness though, if he got kicked out of school, he won't be able to play anywhere will he?  Somebody in the OP's thread said he might be able to go to Rutgers still?  Don't you have to graduate HS to go to college?

I'm not sure if this was posted in the other thread or not.  I just noticed it personally.  It's interesting to note that his Twitter account was private.  I really question the ethics of publishing a story on it.

Apparently not private enough.

That said, publishing a story about it was probably questionable (then again, so is a huge business built around where 17/18 year olds decide to go to college). I'm sure people recruiting him saw those tweets way before they were public though, that'd be pretty basic due diligence.

While I agree to some degree, you also can regulate who can follow your account if you set it to private. Every follower has to be approved. If you're letting journalists or strangers follow you, you're opening yourself up to that can of worms, especially if you're going to tweet the controversial and racy tweets that Yuri did. I'm not saying that those tweets should not have been made public. I think that's going to be an interesting debate in the future. What I'm saying is that Yuri had the ability to regulate who could view his account, but didn't. He had the ability to regulate what he tweeted, but he didn't. He is clearly not innocent in this regard.

There's really no such thing as a private Twitter. That's the point of Twitter, to not be private. Restricted, maybe, but that doesn't keep it from getting out. This is like posting pictures of you smoking weed on your Facebook and then being surprised when your employer finds it.

Here's an idea: if you want something to be private, don't post it on the Internet.
