As I wrote Wednesday, the NCAA sought Mockevicius’ high school records, information from his former university in Lithuania and correspondence from the Lithuanian national team for which he played as an amateur.
“The college records were likely sought to figure out exactly when Mockevicius enrolled in college,” Infante wrote, “which would be relevant to knowing if he had used eligibility under delayed enrollment rules and when his five-year clock started. The amateurism side of the Eligibility Center was probably looking at what expenses or benefits Mockevicius received from the Lithuanian national team.”
Infante added that, “The NCAA is often accused of discriminating or punishing international athletes, so it is always good when one is fully cleared to play.”
