Enes Kanter's Eligibility Reportedly to Be Decided Soon

Enes Kanter's appeal to be reinstated by the NCAA this season will be decided in the next couple of days, according to an online report.

A source has told Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com that the NCAA will be reviewing the case Thursday afternoon, and a final decision on the appeal will be made shortly thereafter. Kentucky re-submitted their case to the NCAA early last month. Speculation centered on the then-recent Cam Newton ruling, which Kentucky hoped to use as precedent.

Kanter was ruled "permanently ineligible" prior to the season for receiving over $30,000 from a club team in his native Turkey.

A sure-fire first round draft pick in 2011, Kanter would be a major addition to Kentucky's front court, which is thin beyond the suddenly-potent Josh Harrellson.
