You Can't Spell "DePaul" Without "Clusterfuck."

Hey, remember Mr. Sparkle's post about DePaul interim orca whale head coach Tracy Webster getting a verbal commitment from a Chicago eighth-grader, who's 6'8" and growing? You're not going to believe this, but ...

DePaul even managed to screw that up. I know, I'm shocked, too.

The quick and dirty: until a recruit signs a national letter of intent, you're not allowed to comment publicly on the recruit. Everyone associated with recruiting knows this -- everyone, it seems, but DePaul A.D. Jean Lenti Ponsetto*, who waxed eloquent about young Jahlil Okafor to ESPN Chicago. Whoops!

* OK, it's not just Ms. Ponsetto. Lane Kiffin had problems with this black-and-white rule, too, but he's a con artist and a dipshit, so he's partially absolved of blame.

When it rains, it pours, I guess.
