  • NCAA Clearinghouse Selby Investigation runs deeper (He is not in school)

    Selby update

    Kansas University freshman Josh Selby is on campus, but has not yet started to attend classes four days into first semester. Selby, a 6-3 point guard from Baltimore’s Lake Clifton High, has had his eligibility questioned by the NCAA, which is looking into a relationship between Selby and Robert Frazier, who advised Selby and his mom during the recruiting process. Frazier is Carmelo Anthony’s business manager.

    “I can’t comment on the situation,” KU coach Bill Self said Monday night. “I’ve been told to not comment on anything. Hopefully the situation will be cleared up and resolved very soon.”

    Both Self and Selby’s mom have said they are confident the country’s No. 1-rated player will be cleared to play at KU soon. Selby’s mom has indicated she’s spoken to the NCAA about the matter.

    Self declined any further comment on Selby’s situation. The NCAA does not comment on eligibility issues of student-athletes.

    Kent Sterling, the owner and editor of Indianapolis-based kentsterling.com, reported Monday that the NCAA investigation into Selby’s amateur status “stretches beyond Bill Self, Selby, KU and Frazier. It includes the basketball programs at Kentucky and Tennessee and their relationships during the recruiting process with Frazier and Selby. This is according to a person close to the investigation.”

    Sterling told the J-W in an e-mail that his source would not reveal specifics.

    I overheard a discussion last night at the rec with a guy who works in/knows someone in the financial aid department. Apparently Selby has withdrawn from all of his fall classes.

      Not to reduce the significance of your rumor, because that is serious. I think he has to withrdraw, otherwise be at risk of having to pay for his classes if he does not get cleared by the clearinghouse.

      I don't think this looks good at all. Bill Self's comments are a bit scary.

        That's not a good sign. Shit, he isn't even going to play a game here.

          Well when you're not cleared for a scholarship, you either pay for your classes or you're automatically dropped. Someone has to pay the tuition.

          See Brandon Rush, John Wall, et. al.
