When Kansas brought in Cliff Alexander, the third ranked recruit in the entire nation, they expected a lot more than what he’s produced in his rookie season. Alexander was suspended indefinitely yesterday for what the Athletic Director deemed a “NCAA issue with his eligibility.”
That’s just corporatespeak for whatever “infraction” was supposedly committed in this situation. Remember “infraction” here is defined by the NCAA; and the NCAA is not at all consistent when it comes eligibility rulings. Their laws are extremely arbitrary and capricious.
Details will emerge soon enough, the only information public right now is meaningless legalese. However, even before this latest issue arose, the 6-9, 235 power forward from Curie High School in Chicago was having a disappointing season.Follow paulmbanks
