Carson ineligible to play for Sun Devils
Top recruit Jahii Carson has been ruled ineligible to play for
Arizona State in the 2011-12 season.
Carson didn’t meet the NCAA’s initial academic eligibility
standards and retook the ACT test, but the school recently learned
he had come up just short and appealed to the NCAA.
The NCAA’s Eligibility Center ruled on Friday that Carson can’t
play but will be allowed to practice with the team this season.
Carson is one of the highest-rated recruits at Arizona State and
for coach Herb Sendek, who recently had a two-year contract
extension approved by the school’s board of regents.
Carson was projected as the starting point guard for the Sun
Devils, who are 3-5 without him.
