Kansas freshman guard Josh Selby said on his Twitter account Tuesday afternoon that “I feel good about me being cleared but I don’t know for sure.”
The NCAA is investigating the relationship between Selby and Robert “Bay” Frazier, who is the business manager for Denver Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and advised Selby during his college recruitment process. Selby, Anthony and Frazier are all Baltimore natives.
Selby would lose his amateur status if he has entered into a verbal or written agreement with Frazier. The difference between an acting agent and a friendly adviser has been a gray area for the NCAA, which is the best explanation for why Selby now finds himself in limbo.
Selby, rated the top prospect in the 2010 recruiting class by Rivals.com, would likely start for the Jayhawks from day one. He is projected as the No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by draftexpress.com.
