Freshman big man Cliff Alexander was delcared out for Saturday’s game vs. Texas because of an NCAA eligibility issue, Kansas announced.
There was no immediate word if Alexander would miss games beyond Saturday.
“The NCAA has alerted us to an issue that could affect Cliff’s eligibility,” Kansas athletic director Sheahon Zenger said in a statement. “As a precautionary measure Cliff will not take the court until we have resolved the issue.”
Coach Bill Self said, “We are committed to NCAA rules compliance and we want to make sure that we take every precaution to minimize the impact on Cliff.”
The school is planning no further comment until it is “resolved.”
Alexander, a five-star prospect from Chicago, is averaging 7.1 and 5.3 rebounds.
