KU Basketball Coach Bill Self Comments On Recruit Josh Selby

The last time we heard from Kansas freshman Josh Selby he was attending classes in Lawrence, Kan. but not yet cleared to participate.

In a statement on KU's official athletics web site, KU head coach Bill Self confirmed that was attending classes and practicing but he is not yet cleared to play.

"We have had numerous inquiries about the status of Josh Selby. The NCAA has cleared Josh to be on scholarship, attend class and practice, but he has not yet been cleared for participation.  That process is ongoing.  It is not uncommon for these cases to take time, as we have seen in many other cases. Of course we would prefer that this be behind us, but we respect the process and will not comment further until it is complete."

SB Nation's Rock Chalk Talk passes along word that there were Twitter rumors building that Selby had been ruled ineligible. It seems that Self's statement is in response to some of those rumors.

Once again, we wait to hear the status of Josh Selby but I'd take it as good news that he's practicing.
