It is possible that he could wind up with only three years of eligibility.

What are the new academic requirements for freshmen in Division I, beginning in August 2016?

To get a scholarship, practice and compete in their first year, incoming freshmen must meet a series of academic requirements, including:

Complete 16 core courses, 10 of which must be completed before the beginning of senior year of high school. Of the 10 core courses, seven must be in English, math or science.
Earn a 2.3 grade-point average in the 16 core courses.
Meet the sliding scale requirement of GPA and test score (ACT or SAT).
Graduate from high school.
To get a scholarship and practice in the first year, incoming freshmen must:

Complete 16 core courses
Earn a 2.0 GPA in the 16 core courses
Meet the sliding scale requirement of GPA and test score (ACT or SAT).
Graduate from high school.

Key word here is compete. As of now, we have not heard anything official, so it is just an unsubstantiated rumor, but it is possible.

22 hours ago the Aces put out an article on the Aces basketball practices and how well they were going. Walter said that they were putting in new things, and that they were getting better every day. NOT ONE WORD ABOUT DEANDRE. This whole subject was a bunch of crap.

That's not something the university would address in any way, shape, or form. I believe it is a bunch of crap too.

Ok....enough is enough.....is he eligible or not? Pat Hickey, please get us an answer.....I know you are reading all this. I know there may be absolutely nothing to this...but....UE is not real good about putting out this type of information. SOMEONE....please put this to rest one way or the other. The PAF Board does not need anymore of this so called stuff.....from here on out.....we need good info not "fake news"...hahaha!
Just my opinion...I could be wrong!

He is officially out for this season. I was told this 2 months ago, and UE has hid it all this time. Sad....
