Lots of guys are immature, many are not but few let it show so obviously on the field as Yorman does. I seen it on and off the field last season and it was quite disheartening. I'm not done believing in him fully but I have seen it to many times with plenty of players to not ding him for it right now.
IMO a players attitude is extremely important in his development and his stinks right now.
Is anyone playing hardball with him? Any coaches for scouting directors seeking intervention, counseling? Seems like letting 2.5 million bucks spoil is such a waste.
