Ringo: Smith Granted Release to USC Only

21
Smith informed coach Dan Hawkins of his decision to transfer more than a week ago. He said his motivation for leaving was because CU does not offer the music major or program he wants to study. Colorado refused to grant Smith a blanket release, which would allow him to transfer to any school of his choosing. Instead, Bohn granted the release to USC only because that school met the criteria Smith said he was most interested in — it is close to home (Moorpark, Calif.) and offers the music program. "That is our practice with all of our student-athletes who are in good academic standing and are doing well on campus and within the program," Bohn said. "We don’t provide a release initially until we have all the information associated with their decision to transfer and any nuances associated with it. "It’s because of the investment that is already placed in the student-athletes. We have a lot invested in them and just don’t allow people to transfer when we feel like we provided a very solid foundation for them to succeed academically and athletically."
