Mbakwe Transfers...

......to another high school in the Twin Cities. Earlier we'd reported that 2007 commit Trevor Mbakwe was moving to Georgia to complete high school. Well, things have changed - - again. Per the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Mbakwe left Sibley High School and is now enrolled at St. Bernard's. Sounds like this move was a compromise between mother and son:

"It's a done deal, he's gone," Henry Sibley coach Tom Dasovich said Tuesday. "His mom didn't want to come back to Sibley and Trevor didn't want to go to Georgia. I wish him the best. I hope they help him academically as much as possible."
The last sentence in Dasovich's quote gives me pause, however. After flip-flopping on his choice of high school as both a junior and a senior, let's hope Mbakwe transitions smoothly at St. Bernard's -- particularly in the classroom.
