Josh Selby’s Eligibility Questioned

by August 08, 2010

It’s been a tough week for the next generation of ball players. First Will Barton had his eligibility come into question. Now Josh Selby finds himself in a similar situation. ESPN reports: A report by indicated the NCAA was questioning a relationship between Selby and Robert Frazier, the business manager for NBA star Carmelo Anthony. Selby, a point guard from Baltimore, has been listed by some services as the No. 1 recruit in the country. Self, who was out of town, issued a statement. ‘I have received several calls about the article,’ he said. ‘As has been mentioned previously, we do not comment on recruits until they arrive on campus for the fall semester. I will say, as we have experienced in the past in our program, it is not at all unusual for the NCAA to look into many of the country’s top-rated recruits each year for any number of reasons.’ Selby’s mother was quoted by the Lawrence Journal-World as saying she did not see any problems with the NCAA.”
