Kansas State "accidentally" grants permission to Leticia Romero to talk to MTSU

+

In a report by the Manhattan Mercury, the debacle that is the Leticia Romero case took another weird turn. Romero was actually granted permission to talk to one of the 94 schools on her list, Middle Tennessee State. But, the problem is that Kansas State didn't mean to give her that permission to talk to the Blue Raiders. As a matter of fact, once the Wildcats realized that they gave Romero that permission, they immediately tried to rescind it -- they claimed it was a "clerical error." One has to feel sorry for Romero and all that she's enduring.
