GE1974 at MarquetteHoops uncovered the latest info on Lazar Hayward's eligibility issue -- or at least the latest speculation.
It seems that a blogger at Fox Sports claims to have inside info on Hayward's eligibility hiccup:
"According to a source, the problem with Hayward stems from the fact that his old high school, Buffalo Traditional, closed down and some records haven't been able to be found."Amazingly, we have confirmed that the Buffalo Public School district survived the closing of Traditional High School and successfully managed the transfer of its student population to other locations. We're guessing the records of current and previous students were also taken care of as part of their standard operating procedures (especially since the transcript would have been required for admission at Notre Dame Prep).
Oy. Here we have a claim drop in from out of nowhere -- with no viable source willing to go on the record, appearing on a blog that has never covered MU before. Consider me unconvinced.
