Chris Rodgers was recently classified as learning disabled (thus voiding his 20-points-short SAT score) and is now in the middle of the appeals process to the NCAA for full restoration of his eligibility.
Arizona assistant coach Rodney Tention, Rodgers' closest contact at the University, said this evening that he has spoken with Chris lately and that, "he still wants to come (to Arizona)."
Even though it's an outside shot as far as getting an NCAA ruling on his eligibility by the time classes start on the 26th, Rodgers could conceivably be fully eligible to play as a freshman. Games included.
Tention told Cattracks that more will be known on Monday about the ongoing situation but seemed optimistic.
