FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The following is a statement from the University of Arkansas regarding a compliance review involving a student-athlete.
“Earlier this week, media reports suggested that potentially improper steps were taken to secure a vehicle for an Arkansas student-athlete. The University immediately initiated a review of the matter. Although the television station that reported the story has publicly apologized for its initial report, the University has continued to vigorously review the matter. The University is appreciative of the cooperation of those who have been involved in the review process. While it would not be appropriate to comment specifically regarding the review at this time, it should be noted that the student-athlete has not been ruled ineligible. We will continue to work judiciously to review this matter.”
