Louisville freshman wing Shaqquan Aaron has finally heard from the NCAA, as he’ll sit out the first nine games and repay money owed for benefits related to housing, according to a release from the school. A 6-foot-7 native of Seattle, Aaron will also do community service hours to fulfill his reinstatement.
The NCAA determined that Aaron’s family received extra benefits related to housing, so he lost 30 percent of his season. He can make his long-awaited season debut on Dec. 20 when Louisville plays at Western Kentucky.
Aaron could be a nice piece to have on the wing, as he’s been practicing with the team all throughout this waiting process. He was a four-star player and the No. 30 overall prospect in the 2014 class, according to Rivals, and Aaron can really get rolling as a scorer or a playmaker.
Nice to see the NCAA finally come through with a ruling and Aaron will finally get to play at some point this month.
