LiAngelo Ball will leave UCLA: Dad says, 'He's out of there'

  • LaVar Ball Removes LiAngelo from UCLA

The father of UCLA guard LiAngelo Ball says he plans to withdraw his son from school because of concerns related to the freshman's indefinite suspension for his admitted participation in a shoplifting incident during the Bruins' trip to China.

"We are exploring other options with Gelo", he said. "He's out of there".

A reason LiAngelo Ball was on the UCLA roster was due to his older brother, Lonzo, starring there previous year, and because his five-star recruit younger brother, LaMelo, is slated to go there in 2019. "So basically they're in jail here", he added. Ball is a freshman who hasn't played a game for UCLA yet.

"He's not transferring to another school. Because if you've got three, only one, maybe two make it to the NBA", LaVar Ball said.

It goes without saying that LaVar Ball is no stranger to making headlines, especially during his recent spat with President Trump regarding LiAngelo Ball's arrest for shoplifting in China.

LaVar Ball told ESPN prior to the season that LiAngelo would only stay at UCLA for one season, even if he wasn't projected as a draft pick.

"I haven't told any of those guys,"Lavar told ESPN".

Asked if LiAngelo agreed with the decision, the elder Ball told the Times, "My boy is loyal to me". They were going to keep the best shooter on the team coming off the bench? LiAngelo was a student and athlete at UCLA.

For LaVar Ball, the drama of arguing with the president and having his son leave U.C.L.A. - where his youngest son, LaMelo, is also committed to attend in 2019 - is nothing new.
