"We learned today of LiAngelo Ball's intention to withdraw from UCLA".

Freshman LiAngelo Ball, 19, never played for UCLA after entering as a three-star prospect from Chino Hills High School in Southern California.

The middle Ball did not play a single game as a member of the UCLA team, and his father said that his suspension was worse than the punishment he received in China.

LaVar Ball told the Los Angeles Times and ESPN on Monday that he's going to explore other options for LiAngelo because "I'm not going to let him sit back and not practice". "He's out of there".

"He's not transferring to another school", Ball told ESPN. The youngest brother, LaMelo Ball, 16, has verbally committed to playing for UCLA.

He added: "We will deal with them in a positive way and what happened to Yemen is enough". In 2011, Yemen fell into chaos after an uprising deposed Saleh.

LiAngelo Ball was indefinitely suspended alongside teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill after they were accused last month of shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton store next to their hotel in Hangzhou, China. The incident made global news and even President Donald Trump weighed in on the matter claiming he advocated and was responsible for the release of Ball and the other two UCLA players.

When LiAngelo returned to the United States, the university put him on indefinite suspension, a punishment that LaVar believes is unjust because the charges were dropped against his son. "If I was going to thank somebody I'd probably thank President Xi (Jinping)", LaVar Ball said to CNN's Chris Cuomo.

Looks like LiAngelo's career with the UCLA Bruins is over before it could officially begin.

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