Former UConn Recruit Xavier Rathan-Mayes Ineligible This Year at Florida State
Turns out, Rathan-Mayes' rejection of UConn may have been a blessing in disguise. Seminoles coach Leonard Hamilton announced on Monday that Rathan-Mayes will be ineligible for this entire season. Citing a source, Jeff Borzello of CBSsports.com says that the NCAA did not accept an entire year of credits from a school Rathan-Mayes attended in North Carolina.
Tough break for the kid and for Florida State, but for UConn, perhaps a bullet dodged.
