Kansas coach Bill Self addresses report
LAWRENCE, Kan. -- In the wake of a report saying Kansas recruit Josh Selby may not be eligible, Jayhawks coach Bill Self said Thursday "it is not at all unusual" for the NCAA to look at some of the nation's top recruits.
A report by CBSsports.com indicated the NCAA was questioning a relationship between Selby and Robert Frazier, the business manager for NBA star Carmelo Anthony.
Selby, a point guard from Baltimore, has been listed by some services as the No. 1 recruit in the country.
Self, who was out of town, issued a statement.
"I have received several calls about the article," he said. "As has been mentioned previously, we do not comment on recruits until they arrive on campus for the fall semester. I will say, as we have experienced in the past in our program, it is not at all unusual for the NCAA to look into many of the country's top-rated recruits each year for any number of reasons."
Selby's mother was quoted by the Lawrence Journal-World as saying she did not see any problems with the NCAA.
