NCAA Rules James Wiseman Ineligible

The NCAA has ruled top-rated recruit James Wiseman ineligible to play according to Sudu Upadhyay a reporter for WMC Action News.

According to attorney Leslie Ballin, Memphis head coach Penny Hardaway helped finance Wiseman’s family move to Memphis back in 2018. The NCAA has named Hardaway a booster at this time.

There is no news yet on if he will appeal for eligibility or the punishment that may come down on Hardaway for facilitating the move.

Wiseman was ranked as the top recruit for ESPN and the second-overall recruit for 247sports. He spent time with Hardaway through AAU basketball before their time at Memphis.

The loss of Wiseman will hurt Memphis’ title chances this season, as Hardaway has already guaranteed a National Championship for the school. Memphis already won their season-opener against South Carolina State 97-64. Wiseman scored 28 points and totaled 11 rebounds on the night.
