Recruiting reopens for MSU football; Naomi Osaka is out of the French Open after controversy over her 'no press' stance; NBA playoffs update

On today's Current Sports with Al Martin, we dive into the shocking news out of the French Open in which top female tennis superstar Naomi Osaka has withdrawn. The news comes after Osaka noted that she would not talk to the media during the duration of the tourney as a means of raising awareness for mental health. Also, we dive into discussion centered on Mel Tucker and the MSU football program. The NCAA dead period has ended and the recruiting trail now heats up! The show closes on a caller voicemail highlighting the NBA playoffs, and more out-of-control fans at NBA arenas. That, and more!
