After being ruled academically ineligible for the 2014-2015 season, SG Kobie Eubanks reopens his recruitment.

First, some reaction tweets from recruitment media:

Eubanks decommitment doesn't come as a huge surprise. Baylor already has two young shooting guards on the roster in redshirt freshman Al Freeman and freshman Dee Durham. Eubanks has better size than both, and has a chance to be a better scorer than both, but he'd have to fight them for minutes. Additionally, Baylor as three shooting guards/combo guards in the 2015 recruiting class, including one King McClure, who looks to be a true baller. Couple an overcrowded position with eligibility issues, and it seemed almost inevitable that this decommitment could happen. Given the current and incoming talent at the guard position for the Bears, I don't foresee this being too big of an issue going forward, which says quite a bit. Scott Drew has put the program in a position where the loss of a 4* recruit isn't an utter disaster. That's pretty good.

Best of luck to Eubanks on his future. As one of the best available recruits in the 2015 class, he should have no trouble finding a new home.
