NCAA seeks documents from family of basketball recruit Renardo Sidney

The NCAA has opened its review of star basketball recruit Renardo Sidney, a Mississippi State athletic official said Thursday.

Sidney, a 6-foot-10 power forward from Los Angeles Fairfax High, signed a letter of intent with Mississippi State last month after he was dropped as a recruit by UCLA and USC. Sidney had announced his plans to sign with USC. The family has said the split between player and school came by mutual decision.
