Louisville Freshman Shaqquan Aaron Has Been Cleared by the NCAA

The NCAA has cleared Louisville freshman guard Shaqquan Aaron and he will be able to make his college debut on December 20 when the Cardinals play at Western Kentucky.

Here is a release from UL:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - University of Louisville freshman guard Shaqquan Aaron can make his debut with the Cardinals' men's basketball team on Dec. 20 when U of L plays at Western Kentucky.

During Aaron's NCAA amateurism certification for initial eligibility, it was determined that his family received preferential treatment related to housing prior to Aaron's enrollment at U of L. He must sit out the first nine games -- 30 percent of the season -- and will have repayment and community service hours to fulfill his reinstatement.

A 6-7 freshman from Seattle, Wash., Aaron has missed the Cardinals' first seven games and will remain on the bench for UofL's game against Indiana in the Jimmy V Classic tonight and for Sunday's home game against UNC Wilmington. He has continued to practice with the team while awaiting completion of the NCAA process.

A two-time first-team AP Class 3A all-state selection and the Washington state player of the year as a senior, Aaron averaged 19.7 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 7.5 assists last season in leading Rainier Beach High School to the Washington Class 3A state championship.
