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.

Kansas State asks for their AD's letter to be removed publicly, a move that has been denied.

+

Kansas State has sent a letter to the Manhattan Mercury requesting the immediate removal of a specific letter - the letter in question is that of athletic director John Currie's. In the letter, he stated: "Although it is unprecedented, I believe that is in the student-athlete’s best interest for the committee to reconvene to consider this new information and potentially approve her request for a conditional transfer release." The Manhatten Mecury have denied this request, the link to a photo of the letter is here.
