    His high school did not get his paperwork in on time and with this being the first graduatiing class from his HS the NCAA has to confirm the schools accreditation.

    I read where someone said with Holden Thorpe appointing the people to do the investigation it’s like Jerry Sandusky picking his own jury, they need an outside investigation like Penn State did to get the real answers expect nothing to come from this “investigation”
