Change of Plans For Joyner

Terrance Joyner was all set to enroll at Arkansas. However, a hang up with the Clearinghouse changed his college plan.

It wasn't supposed to happen this way but point guard Terrance Joyner finds himself without a collegiate home. The fall signee with the Arkansas Razorbacks was about to enroll for the second semester in Fayetteville when he was thrown a curveball.

Joyner, who last attended Genesis One in Mendenhall, Miss., was unable to enroll. "I couldn't get into school because my stuff is under review and they've yet to evaluate my GPA," Joyner said. "I'm going to be alright once the NCAA evaluates my stuff."

Intent on keeping up with his academics, Joyner may enroll at a junior college this week and take part time classes. However, should he go that route he won't be playing ball and will not start his NCAA "clock."

"I have some options where I can get committed in the next month. I'm going to look at some schools that need point guards and see what is the best situation for me."

So far Southern Cal, Tennessee, New Mexico State and Wyoming are among the handful that have reached out to Joyner.

Joyner said he will hear back from the Clearinghouse in 4-6 weeks.

"I'm just waiting. I'm about to check into (a junior college) and take part time classes until I choose the school I go to. I want to make sure I get cleared; that's my main focus."
