Just received a text from 610 that Josh Selby was not cleared by the NCAA. No link as I'm on my phone, but I didn't see anything else about this.

KK talking about this on 810. He's very worried for KU.

KK will talk about this and nothing else for the next week and a half. Even if it's bogus.

Questioning amateur status, not academic.

Selby's "advisor" is Carmelo Anthony's business advisor (or something like that)

Doubtful anything will come of this.

Yeah, NCAA is questioning his amateur status. I'm not going to worry about this until October. It sure will give KK a lot to talk about it. Losing Selby wouldn't be very good, but I don't think it'll even come close to happening.

Has the Topeka Cap. Journal offered a rebuttal? /KK

Well that would suck if he doesn't clear but there is no reason to worry at this point. Rush and the Morris twins both cleared late. So this could turn out to be nothing.

Not worried. Lance Stephenson was cleared, Josh Selby shouldn't be a problem.

Yeah, but with all the recent hub-bub about player/agent connections, he'll be scrutinized more. But I do think he'll be cleared. The NCAA just wants to look like they're covering all their bases.

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't John Wall just get suspended last year for something along the lines of taking improper gifts?

Selby’s eligibility in question; freshman’s mom: ‘ … I don’t foresee any problems at all’
By Gary Bedore

The mother of incoming Kansas University freshman Josh Selby on Thursday responded to a CBSSports.com report that indicated her son has not yet been cleared by the NCAA to play basketball at KU because of questions about his amateur status.

“I think we all hope it gets resolved soon,” Maeshon Witherspoon told the Journal-World. “We’d like it to get resolved quickly like anybody would so Josh will be able to play.

“I personally don’t see any problems with the NCAA. Josh has not yet been cleared. I’m sure there are other kids have not been cleared as standard procedure. I don’t anticipate us having any problems whatsoever with the NCAA. I can’t control what people say. I can’t control hearsay. My statement is I don’t foresee any problems at all.”

CBSsports.com indicated the NCAA “is looking into, among other things, a relationship between Selby and Robert Frazier, the business manager for NBA star Carmelo Anthony."

Witherspoon told the Journal-World she’s already talked to the NCAA and other media outlets about the family’s friendship with Frazier, who said in an interview with the New York Times he served as an adviser to Selby in the recruiting process.

“With all due respect, I’m not talking about him (Frazier) because there’s nothing to talk about,” Witherspoon told the J-W. “I just don’t see any problems with my son.”

CBSsports.com sources said the NCAA has spent months looking into Selby’s relationship with Frazier to see whether Selby’s “amateur status has been compromised.”

The New York Times wrote a long piece about Selby and Frazier in April.

The paper reported that when a host of prospective agents were trying to talk to Selby’s mom, friends recommended Witherspoon speak with Frazier, business manager for Anthony, who like Selby, is from Baltimore.

Witherspoon, the Times wrote, “said she soon recognized Frazier from her elementary school, and now talks regularly with him.”

“Bay’s been a lifesaver; so glad we reconnected,” Witherspoon told the Times. “He’s behind the scenes providing a place for us to meet with coaches and giving so much information. He doesn’t need us. To be honest, we need him.”

Frazier, whose nickname is “Bay,” told the Times there’s been no wrongdoing. NCAA rules do not prohibit contact with an adviser.

“It’s a new hustle in Baltimore,” Frazier told the New York Times. “People think they can take a kid out for a meal or buy him something, but that’s not what I am about. I’ve had relationships with Carmelo and Josh since they’ve been young.”

KU associate athletic director Jim Marchiony said policy is to “not comment at all on prospects or recruits before they come to campus (in fall).”

KU coach Bill Self has been out of town and unavailable for comment. Selby is in Chicago with the adidas nations camp, working as a counselor. NCAA officials do not comment on eligibility matters.

Memphis just found out that Will Barton isn't eligible, and there was never a hint that he wouldn't be eligible.

Memphis just found out that Will Barton isn't eligible, and there was never a hint that he wouldn't be eligible.

Will Barton was found that he was NOT eligible and it was because of academics. Not even close to the same thing. This has nothing to do w/ academics. And there was just an article that is indicating Selby has not yet been found eligible or ineligible. Enes Kanter isn't eligible yet. So what. NCAA is just buying time to try to investigate and find something. 100% guaranteed that Selby suits up for the Jayhawks next season. I'll be willing to put down 500K casino cash to whoever is game.

Well, as long as Maeshon doesn't foresee any problems...

Sucks if true.

But we all know most powerhouse programs usually are able to "fix the glitch" if you know what i mean.
