Ruling: Bledsoe Eligible During Season at UK

by September 25, 2010

Bledsoe has managed to avoid trouble despite allegations of grade inflation while in high school. An investigation found the changes “not plausible.” From Andy Katz: “In response to the statement issued by the NCAA, Kentucky spokesperson DeWayne Peevey said, ‘it is our understanding that the matter is closed.’ A source who read the report said since the Birmingham school board didn’t indicate Bledsoe would be given a new transcript so it is highly unlikely there would be any change in Bledsoe’s eligibility for the 2009-10 season. The Eligibility Center needs a new transcript from a student-athlete to consider reversing a previous decision. If there is no new transcript, and there won’t be since the report said the investigation is over, then there would be no need to alter Bledsoe’s eligibility.”
