Top Point Guard Picks Kentucky
So hotshot point guard prospect John Wall chose to play for Kentucky and new coach John Calipari. No surprise there. Here's the interesting part of the story -- interestingly, never mentioned in this story:
Wall, who must still gain academic eligibility, faces one other minor hurdle. He is due in court May 29 to answer to a misdemeanor breaking and entering citation. He is eligible for a first-offender program in which punishment is usually community service. As a first offender, he can also petition the court to remove the citation from his record.
You might think that nearing the end of the school year, academic eligibility would be cleared up. You might think that breaking and entering might be a deterrent on some level. And you would, of course, be wrong.
