New Parolee for Can't State

"Senderoff will also hope that Tabb can be the next in a long line of successful second chances Can't State has offered to athletes with troubled pasts.Tabb left Wake Forest in September of 2011 after he pled guilty to charges that he stole an iPod from a classmate’s dorm room and later tried to pawn it. In a telephone interview on Thursday, he did not shy away from talking about the poor judgment that led to those legal problems.

“It was a lesson learned,” said Tabb, who was 19 years old when charges of breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods led to his dismissal at Wake Forest. “I made a mistake, I accepted responsibility and I learned from it. I suffered the consequences.”

Tabb was reportedly ordered to enter a deferred-prosecution program that included 12 months of supervised probation and 50 hours of community services. Once those were completed, prosecutors agreed to dismiss all charges against him."

He was a 4 star recruit in high school. 6'8" 225 lbs. Not bad. Should be interesting to see what he can do on the court if he keeps his nose clean.

The full quote:

“It was a lesson learned,” said Tabb, who was 19 years old when charges of breaking and entering and possession of stolen goods led to his dismissal at Wake Forest. “I made a mistake, I accepted responsibility and I learned from it. Next time I will have my baby's Mama take the goods to the pawn shop."

Character issues aside the kid sounds like a great pick up. If the kid can learn his lesson Can't will have grabbed a great player with quite a few years of eligibility. I would have loved to see him go somewhere not in the MAC.

I guess the rumor about Can't cleaning up the program and pulling back on the "second chance" philosophy was wildly overblown. Sounds like business as usual -- the better the player, the more that can be forgiven. :rolleyes:

"Last year, he averaged 9.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game for Midland, shooting 48 percent from the field and 61 percent from the foul line."

Those are numbers that will terrify the entire MAC. ;)
