TUSCALOOSA | Donald Jackson, the attorney for recently admitted University of Alabama basketball player Verice Cloyd, told CBS SportsLine.com this weekend that he is concerned that the NCAA may launch a “lengthy review" into Cloyd and dozens of other former prep school players, possibly delaying their eligibility past the start of the upcoming college basketball season.
“I had hoped … all this was over," Jackson said in the interview. “But this is far from over."
Jackson represents Cloyd, a freshman guard played at Genesis One Prep in Mendenhall, Miss. Cloyd had to wait through a long, highly publicized process before gaining NCAA clearance and, ultimately, admission into UA
NCAA clears but then wants to punish?
My $.02... crap or get off the pot NCAA. Either say you will or won't accept players from schools like this. Don't be wishy washy. All this does is put a kid's college career on hold as the NCAA figures out what they want to do... and we all know they take their sweet ass time doing so!
This irks me to no end!
