The Kansas Jayhawks have been waiting for one of the biggest pieces of their 2015 recruiting class to get cleared, but right now the NCAA has been unwavering on their end.
Cheick Diallo has yet to be cleared by the NCAA and it is certainly frustrating to much of the Jayhawks’ program.
One person that is highly upset with the way Diallo has been treated to this point is head coach Bill Self. On Saturday, the Jayhawks released a statement, within which Self tore into the NCAA and their handling of Diallo’s eligibility.
Self continued and talked about the clearing process for the four-star recruit. He said that it is taking a lot longer than anticipated previously.
“After going through the process I’d say anything is possible. Not putting any blame or fault on anything. It’s just there’s a few moving parts. The NCAA has to follow policy on those parts. So it can be a little frustrating but certainly it’s not one at this point and time to stand up and beat the drum saying, ‘This should positively happen.’ I think we have to respect the process. … I’ll be real honest. I don’t know what’s normal. I personally don’t think this is normal. I don’t know what’s normal.”
