Back in August, we reported that SEMO PG C.J. Reese had yet to be cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse. According to Marty Mishow at the Southeast Missourian, Reese wasn’t cleared due to academic trouble.
Reese could still return after the first semester ends on December 14th, and head coachDickie Nutt tells Mishow that Reese is on pace to make that happen. Reese remains back home in Atlanta while awaiting clearance. Since he wasn’t cleared, Reese wasn’t eligible for a scholarship at Southeast Missouri State.
Also according to Mishow, junior F Michael Porter missed some preseason workouts with a “minor” injury. No word on what that injury might be.
