Texas freshman TE instructed to retake ACT by NCAA

Last week, we reported that Texas Longhorns’ freshman tight end Devonaire Clarington had been cleared by the NCAA. He was declared ineligible by the NCAA after low test scores brought up a red flag on his school status.

It now seems as though Clarington may have run into to a little more confusion as the season draws near. It was reported by The Associated Press that Clarington had been instructed by the NCAA to retake the ACT, the test that he scored low on that caused the ineligibility in the first place. Clarington first announced the news via Twitter.

Re taking the ACT. Wish me luck😊

While Clarington has not yet been re-declared ineligible for the 2015 season, if this issue isn’t solved soon, he could be looking at more trouble and possibly time missed for his true freshman season. Clarington was a four-star member of the Longhorns’ 2015 class and was ranked as the seventh tight end in the nation.

Texas opens the season on the road on September 5 against Notre Dame.
