I do not know Ricky Ledo. Therefore I should not judge, characterize nor advise him.
So I will not.
What I do know is that he is a tremendous talent, a difference maker on the court and a teenager in the public eye faced with an important decision regarding a major phase in his life. Because of this, no matter what, there will be attention and commentary. Not only via the broad based media and outlets like Twitter, but also from those close to, or trying to be close to, Ledo.
Ricky Ledo’s decision will attract attention because others stand to benefit. People with various agendas and motivations. Some close enough to have his ear I suppose.
I have a hope for Ricky Ledo. It might take some real work to navigate the headwinds along the way and get this accomplished, but where ever he goes, whatever he decides, I hope Ricky Ledo has the courage, conviction and determination to make the decision his own.
