Mike Williams Part II: NCAA Denies Alex Stepheson’s Appeal


The 6’9″ forward transferred out of North Carolina to deal with unspecified health issues facing his family.

He hoped the NCAA would reinstate his eligibility on this account; however, he failed to realize institutions only care about the interests of institutions (and not individuals). Just think of the horror universities would have to face — retaining these “amateur” athletes after they signed them.

Stepheson will redshirt this year and have 2 years of eligibility left at USC.
