- Mark Emmert, National Collegiate Athletic Association President
- United States of America
In the summer of 2010, John Calipari and the University of Kentucky basketball pursued Enes Kanter, a center from Turkey. In the last months, he has been declared ineligible multiple times. The cause, Kanter accepted a surplus in funds, 33k to be exact.
This fact has been agreed by both opposing parties, the University of Kentucky and the NCAA. However, multiple other players in similar situations very comparible to the Kanter's have been declared eligible. This petition calls for the NCAA to declare Kanter eligible in pursuit of consistent ruling in these types of cases.
We, the undersigned as representatives of the Big Blue Nation, call the NCAA to reverse the ruling of Enes Kanter from ineligible to eligible.
