The Nevada Wolfpack will be a bit shorthanded in this season's first semester as Devante Elliot and Jerry Evans - two Southern California recruits - were deemed academically ineligible by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
According to Mark Fox, the two will not enroll at Nevada, instead staying at home for the fall semester to try and improve their test scores. But Jeff Goodman is reporting that the two players will look to head elsewhere.
From the Reno Gazette-Journal:
Elliott, a 6-foot-9, 210-pound forward, averaged 10 points, nine rebounds and 4.5 blocks per game last season for Paramount (Calif.) High.Nevada will still have nine scholarship players, including returning starters Luke Babbitt, Armon Johnson, and Dario Hunt, as well as former starter Brandon Fields.
Evans, a 6-7, 180-pound wing, averaged 15.3 points and 7.4 rebounds per game last year for Leuzinger High in Lawndale, Calif.
