ECSU Recruit Loses Luggage Enroute to School

This week, families all across the country are experiencing the bittersweet moment of taking their kids back to college but for one Michigan family, it’s been an absolute nightmare. After their son’s luggage fell off the car en route to college, a North Carolina basketball recruit now doesn’t have any shoes to play in.

Shayne Scruggs was recruited to play basketball on a full scholarship at Elizabeth City State University in North Carolina.

On Sunday, Aug. 14, Scruggs and his parents were traveling 13 hours to North Carolina from Lansing, Michigan.
Fayetteville State by choice. Bronco by the Grace of GOD.

???…….forgive me, JBROB, but does your response suggest you think this story is a scam or something?  I was really sucked in and began to feel sorry for this kid and his family.

But there is so much scam/grifting on the internet these days that I don’t know WHAT to believe anymore. :(

Not a scam.

It just  seems odd that no one noticed a travel carrier falling off a car.  No one behind them.

JBROB^^^yeah, I thought it was rather “odd” as well that no one noticed.  Bruh, at my age, I’m always looking for positive/good/fairytale endings to hardship stories involving black folks.

I hope this story has one of those happy endings.

I hope all goes well for the young man.  The folks in Elizabeth City will take care of him.

Stealing the Capler thought bubble...

If I were a betting man, I would wager that the majority of hoop shoes this cat plays with and lost on the road are Nike and or Jordan (unless ECSU already warned him that they use UA).

The CIAA schools are still under contract with Under Armour if I am not mistaken. UA will get him straight at the start of the season.
