Blogs > Burney's Bytes

Burney's Bytes will focus primarily on the local preps sports scene, but will also touch on some college and pro athletics, mostly in regards to athletes who hail and have played high school sports in Oakland County. My goal for the blog is to be conversational and anecdotal, a more relaxed and free formal take on high school athletics than you see in regular game day coverage.

Arrivals & Departures

Lots of moving and shaking on the local high school sports scene these past few days;
Walled Lake Western football star Torrez Nesbit has departed to Florida and Southfield boys basketball star Isaiah Green has arrived back on the hardwood and re-joined the Bluejays line-up.
Both athletes are juniors.
Nesbit, a big, fast and strong tailback on the gridirion, who helped lead Western to a league championship back in the fall, left recently with his family to go down South where he'll be finishing up his prep career toting the rock in the Tampa area.
If he had returned to Western for his senior season, Nesbit would have been one of Oakland County's top threats out of the backfield. This is the second year in a row that the OC has lost an elite grid stud to a family relocation out of state (last January OLSM star wide receiver Van Jefferson left for Tennessee when his dad Shawn, the former NFL veteran wide out and Detroit Lions assistant coach, took a job with the Titans).
As reported on this blog, Green, a premiere college prospect in the post on the hardwood, left and then came back to Southfield (the team at least).
Up until Friday, it was unknown when or if Green would be allowed to return to the floor this winter, pending a school investigation into the situation.
It obviously got sorted out pretty quick, because Green was in uniform and played against Clarkston Friday night.
