Duke’s Wendell Carter didn’t do anything wrong, according to Duke.
Duke conducted its own investigation into its own player and determined there was no funny business going on. Nothing to see here, they say.
Read the full release on the internal review, which I’m sure was very thorough:
“A Duke student-athlete was identified in a Yahoo! Sports report this morning about men’s college basketball. Duke immediately reviewed the matter and, based on the available information, determined there are no eligibility issues related to today’s report. Duke has already contacted the NCAA and will continue to work collaboratively with the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference. Duke has an uncompromising commitment to compliance in athletics. That has not, and will not, change.”
Welp, I guess that settles that.
(On a serious note with Duke hating aside: It was BS for Yahoo to include Carter in its report to get headlines without any evidence. Same goes for Knox and the other names who didn’t receive money.)
