UK star recruit John Wall has been "cleared to play by the NCAA" after the discovery that his AAU coach was a licensed agent. In the NCAA laying down the law, Wall must sit out two games (which will occur at the beginning of the season against two schools no one has heard of).
Meanwhile, in a situation similar to our very own ND, a West Virgina freshman has been suspended for 20 games because he played for a Turkish team that had a professional player.
To recap, have one of your closest confidants be an agent = 2 game suspension. Play on a team with one professional player = 20 game suspension. Seems like an organization focused on an individual's amateur status should find the other way around. Of course, unlike Wall, no sponsors, tournaments, or the NCAA itself are making millions off of that WVU kid.
