Here's an unfounded rumor, based on something I think I may have read on this board, or maybe someplace else, or maybe I just dreamt it up, the same way I dreamt that mrs. ziik once gave birth to a grilled cheese sandwich, on white bread and a paper plate, with dill pickles and a cheap paper napkin:
The guy's earliest years were spent waaaay south of the border, past Mexico way. So, NCAA clearance is waiting on his childhood academic record being reproduced, and then being sent north by a slow boat, that right now is making its way down the Rio Negro, towards the waters on the Amazon. From there, who knows? Good things take time.
