Report: Jennings Fails to Qualify, Will Play in Europe

According to the East Valley Tribune, Arizona signee Brandon Jennings did not achieve a qualifying score on his standardized test, and will therefore choose to play professionally in Europe before he enters the NBA Draft. However, nothing official has been announced yet, as Arizona spokesman Richard Paige said the school has not received his test score. ESPN, the Tucson Citizen and the Arizona Daily Star have all reported that the scores are not yet in.

Jennings, the nation's top-rated recruit by, had taken the test twice before. He failed it in the first time, but increased his score dramatically the second time, prompting officials to request that he take the test one more time. Over the past week, the talk had grown louder that Jennings would contemplate playing in Europe even if he passed the test. If the Tribune report is true, though, he will not have to contemplate anything. As a college basketball fan, this makes me very nervous for what the future holds.
