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.”
