Hoops: The Fredrick Saga Continues

Well, the saga of Zam Fredrick has taken a few twists and turns. Here's the latest:

1. The Savannah Paper is reporting this morning that Buck wants to come back...

2. However, here's the twist. They are indicating that Coach Hewitt has not decided to allow Buck to return...

But Hewitt also acknowledged he has yet to make a decision on whether to allow Fredrick to return. The coach said he would not comment on the situation until he has done so.

Fredrick remains enrolled at Georgia Tech and intends to take classes this summer, Hewitt said. The summer session begins May 16th.

3. Now, there's also a story in the Macon Telegraph, but it mostly looks like a re-hash of old material, except this quote from Coach Hewitt:

"It's a non-story," Hewitt said Thursday. "If he wants to stay, he's welcome to stay. If he wants to leave, I never want to stand in someone's way."

Hewitt is expected to meet with Fredrick and his mother and father Sunday.

So which is it? Guess we'll have to wait to find out.....
