TOP HOOPS PROSPECT'S MOM PULS HIM FROM AAU GAME


TOP HOOPS PROSPECT'S MOM PULS HIM FROM AAU GAME
Devonta Pollard is one of the top basketball recruits in the Class of 2012. To be specific, Rivals.com ranks the versatile small forward as the No. 6 overall prospect in the senior class. Fittingly, he's being recruited by national powerhouses like Kentucky, Duke and Georgetown, not to mention a host of other strong programs.

Yet all of the Porterville (Miss.) Kemper County prospect's prodigious talent isn't always enough to keep his harshest critic at bay. Who is that critic, you ask? His mom, of course. At a recent high-profile tournament game, she made that abundantly clear by literally pulling him off the floor after the hoops star committed two consecutive errors. More embarrassingly, she forcibly removed her own in front of a gaggle of the nation's best college basketball coaches.

The video below shows Pollard's mother, Jessie Pollard, sending in a sub for the Southern Phenoms AAU squad while pulling off her own son. That wouldn't be a particularly shocking move if Ms. Pollard was the Southern Phenoms coach, but she isn't. Instead, she just happens to be the mother of the team's most notable player, and that was enough to get the change made.
