Sallie now looking at Kty, Mem, Cinn, Md

# Touted guard Roburt Sallie of Sacramento-Valley, Cal/Laurinburg Prep, NC/Patterson School, NC/CC of San Francisco, Cal., won't be eligible to compete at Nebraska, or any Big 12 Conference school. He now plans to visit Kentucky, Memphis, Cincinnati and Maryland. Seton Hall, Oregon State and Marshall are also in the mix.

The reason lies in Big 12 Conference Rule 6.2, which states that any student-athlete who enrolls at a conference institution, part-time or full time, must meet NCAA initial eligibility requirements. Sallie had not met those NCAA requirements when he enrolled part-time and paid for his own classes at Nebraska in the fall of 2006. Sallie, who had recently re-signed with the Huskers in Class 2008, was hoping the NCAA academic clearinghouse would grant him eligibility. Despite three appeals, the NCAA ruled against Sallie and made him in violation of Rule 6.2. Nebraska requested a conference waiver, but the Big 12 Council denied it. Sallie can still compete at any NCAA school outside the Big 12.
