Seton Hall Files Appeal For Kevin Johnson

Seton Hall this week filed an appeal with the NCAA on behalf of 6-foot-9 freshman Kevin Johnson, an NCAA spokesman told SNY.tv.

“It’s in the process of being reviewed,” Chris Radford told SNY.tv.

As first reported by SNY.tv, the NCAA previously informed Seton Hall that Johnson was ineligible on Oct. 5.

Johnson attended William H. Taft (CA) and led the team to a 29-3 record his senior year, averaging 11.9 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game.

Without him, Seton Hall would be left to rely on senior Herb Pope, sophomores Aaron Geramipoor and Patrik Auda and freshman Brandon Mobley as its primary big men. Mobley is recovering from rotator cuff surgery and Willard expects him to return Dec. 1.
