“We are aware of the ruling today handed down by Judge John P. Bailey of the United States District Court for Northern West Virginia. We are consulting with WVU’s General Counsel along with outside counsel prior to making a determination on the eligibility status of any of our student-athletes. We will discuss this with our student-athletes to make the best decision possible taking into consideration the potential consequences of our decision.”

West Virginia is impacted the most through men’s basketball as the ruling gives RaeQuan Battle and Noah Farrakhan immediate eligibility, for now. According to Judge Bailey’s order, the NCAA cannot punish any of the teams for playing “ineligible” players during the next two weeks, as that’s part of the TRO. This doesn’t impact those players’ eligibilities either if the ruling is reversed later.
WVU interim HC Josh Eilert has a scheduled meeting with the media on Thursday morning. Eilert could provide more info then.
