"Casto's fine," Bone said.
But James Watson will need to go to summer school to remain eligible, Bone said.
Watson appeared to be in line for considerably more playing time this coming year in the post.
Watson, who will be a redshirt sophomore next season, played in 29 games as a freshman, averaging 7.1 minutes. He grabbed 53 rebounds and blocked nine shots.

As for his own team this offseason, Bone said the players lacked physical and mental toughness but are making strides in those areas during the offseason. They have been working hard with strength coach David Lange.
