This case study is based on the tragic, real life story of an illiterate athlete recruited to play Division One basketball. He later sued the college for “negligent admissions” and was the impetus for current NCAA regulations on recruitment and academic performance. Your students will be challenged to balance competing ethical interests, analyze the limits of legal recourse, and examine racial considerations. This case study is designed with two scenarios, background information, and detailed teaching notes.
