Sports Illustrated reports LSU true freshman DT Travonte Valentine might not play this season even if his eligibility is green-lighted by the SEC.
Valentine has been awaiting his eligibility status after stepping foot on campus in poor high school academic standing. "Valentine, who at one time was purportedly 6-3 and 325 pounds, showed up in Baton Rouge extremely overweight, according to a source," Sports Illustrated reported. "The combination of needing to lose weight and the SEC’s ongoing review of his academic credentials makes him a likely candidate to redshirt this season." Valentine was cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse late last month, a decision that shocked many. "If Travonte Valentine qualifies there’s something wrong," a source said, saying Valentine had very few high school credits entering his junior year. "It’s not humanly possible." The athletic 6-foot-3, 325-pounder was rated as the No. 34 overall player in his class by 247Sports.com. Sep 15 - 9:56 PM
