Terrence Samuel Will Wait Until Fall to Start Classes at UConn
There may be some sort of issue with one of his high school courses. It's not exactly clear what the issue is, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious. There seems to be some communication issues with his former high school guidance counselor, which has slowed the process.
But I spoke to Samuel this morning and he is upbeat and excited to start his UConn career. It'll just have to start about 1 1/2 months later than he originally had planned.
UConn's second-session summer courses began on July 15.
*** UConn is also apparently doing its due diligence on Rodney Purvis, who had some academic issues prior to his freshman season last year at NC State. Purvis was allowed to play, so there are obviously no eligibility issues. UConn is just being extra careful and looking into the explanation as to why Purvis was, indeed, allowed to play last season.
No reason to make a big deal out of any of this. UConn should be commended for its diligence.
