Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

Posted on: June 25, 2009 12:05 pm's Dave Telep is reporting that John Wall has achieved a qualifying standardized test score, meaning the star of Kentucky's top-ranked recruiting class is one step closer to being cleared to play as a freshman.

Is he in the clear yet?

No, not exactly.

Wall must still get through the NCAA's Clearing House. But most insiders have long believed the test score would be the biggest hurdle, and with that out of the way it now seems likely that the projected No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft will be running the point for John Calipari.

Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

Congrats, Mr. Wall...but hold your breath none-the-less.

Someone once said "It's not over until it's over", but it's not actually over until AFTER it's over.  I heard a rumor that the NCAA is recently looking into some of the recruitment techniques of Rupp, and Phogg Allen LOL.

Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

I bet I know who took the test for him.  The guy with him in the abandoned house.  It makes sense to be the payoff.  You take the test for me and I will get the 16 year old girl in the house with you.

Seriously, congratulations to Wall for passing his test.  It took him a long time to study for.  In fact it took his whole high school career.

Most college STUDENTS take the test a long time before they get to this point.  Shame on Brian Cliftont, WWW, and the NCAA for not letting him go straight to the NBA.  It would have changed the draft tonight, but it would have changed the kid's mom life too.

Shame on everyone for letting her suffer and wait.

Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

I really hope Cal isn't so arrogant to try to pull something sleazy with John Wall's scores... Wall belongs at a technical school with his scholastic ability.

Don't get me started on Eric Bledsoe - did anyone watch his press conference?  He's an insult to grammar...

Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

There is no way that Wall, Cousins, and Bledsoe all get qualified to play next year without some sort of Cali-Sleazy or WWW underhanded intervention.

1) Wall -  He is the one to most likely have the ability to actually qualify by himself (without the before mentioned intervention).  While he may not have made great grades in HS, he sounds like a pretty intelligent kid who could pass the ACT/SAT himself... Not that it takes a genius to do so... I only took it once and I was high as a kite and got a 24 on the ACT.

2) Cousins - This guy goes from a slim chance to qualifying to a relatively good chance of qualifying as a senior after deciding to play for Cali-Sleazy.

3) Bledsoe - Anyone who has ever heard this guy speak and thinks that he can even read needs to lay off the pipe.  If he gets qualified, the NCAA is a total joke for getting played like that.

I think we can speculate that Derrick Rose didn't take it for him.

Report: Wall gets qualifying test score

Good news for UK... I'm sure the non UK fans will have a lot to say about this but it's nothing new. That said, does it really matter if he gets cleared by the NCAA clearing house? (tongue in cheek) I say this because unless I have false information didn't the NCAA clearing house "clear" Rose to play for Memphis? I know the answer but if they can come back two years later and say "oh, we're not sure if he was able to play due to testing all of a sudden" then why are they in place to begin with?

I would like your thoughts on this Gary...
