Nice SB Nation long form read on rural white kid who played ball at black school

    I remember hearing about this kid a few years back. Always wondered what happened to him. This story by Justice B. Hill provides great insight into this kid and what his time was like at Morgan State. It is also interesting that his relative short time at the historically black university still has an impact on him to this day even back in his small rural town in Indiana.

    I thought it was a good piece, too, but I thought the fact that he left Morgan State after a year came WAY too late in the story.

    Does the writer post here?

    I need to know this vital piece of information before I decide on my opinion regarding this particular piece.

    Norrin,

    I don't think Justice posts here but I am sure he probably comes to the site from time to time. I believe most in our industry take a peek but don't like to admit it.
