I’m becoming concerned about SIUE.
After picking them last in my Ridiculously Early 2013-14 Previews, they’re now losing players.
According to multiple reports, DeAngelo Stewart has decomitted from SIUE. On his twitter feed, he mentions making a visit to the University of Toledo this week.
University of Toledo visit Thursday .!! Can’t wait man…

The 6’6′ forward averaged 13 points and 8 rebounds his senior year in high school, and had reportedly signed a National Letter of Intent for the Cougars. Depending whether or not the school released him from the LOI, Stewart may be forced to sit out a year.
The Cougars don’t exactly have a lot of depth at forward, so I can’t imagine potential playing time was a concern.
I’m not sure how off-seasons used to go in Edwardsville before they made the transition to the OVC, but I do know this one hasn’t gone particularly well to this point.
