Prior to the Aggies game at UTEP, I asked Wendell about his academic status. He said that he had to appeal a grade and that he was trying to be patient.
I spoke with McKinley Boston today (Monday), who said that he hadn't heard anything official regarding McKines getting a grade changed and returning to the court sometime this week, either tonight or on Wednesday when the University closes down until after the holidays.
"I haven't heard anything official but I'm hopeful," Boston said.
Boston couldn't get into a specific student's academic situation, but he said "All students have the ability to work with a faculty member to appeal their academic issues. They are in that process as far as I know."
Gillenwater is also involved in an appeal process, but Boston couldn't go into specifics.
The sense that I've had since grades came out is that Troy's situation is more involved than Wendell's. But that's just my opinion.
