Mohamed Bamba ruled eligible by NCAA

It turns out that Ibrahim Johnson’s big plan to ruin his younger brother’s college career isn’t going to work.

Today the NCAA ruled Mohamed Bamba eligible to play at Texas despite allegations from Johnson about Bamba’s relationship with Greer Love, a financial advisor out of Detroit.

“He’s not going to play this year in the NCAA because I already reported him to the NCAA and I’m already going to meet with the NCAA,” Johnson said on Facebook Live. “He’s not going to play this year. I’m not going to lie to you. I exposed that kid.”

The relationship between Bamba and Love has since been cleared and vetted, so sorry about ya, Ibrahim. Today’s statement from the NCAA read, “After evaluating all available information, the NCAA determined the assistance Greer Love provides to Mohamed Bamba does not violate rules. Bamba remains certified by the NCAA Eligibility Center.”

Bamba will now proceed as planned as the Longhorns’ star freshman.

    Now let’s hope UT and Bamba don’t get Derrick Rosed.

      I was going to say the same thing. Also, what kind of jerk/loser tries to sabotage their own brother??

    Bamba seems like a decent kid, and his brother seems like a ne’er-do-well who will annoy his sibling for all his career. He’s Billy Carter to Mohammed’s Jimmy. Here’s hoping he has a successful season and is Texas’ one bright spot in an early-round NCAA blowout loss to the Cats.

    Well I guess maybe we have found that there is a benefit for some recruits not to sign with UK. We would have been waiting until next March for a decision on this.
