FanShot - 2009 Commits DT Edward Nuckols and Ath Josh Moten's Enrollment Delayed

FROM CUBUFFS.COM BOULDER — University of Colorado football coach Dan Hawkins announced Friday that the enrollment of two incoming recruits will be delayed. Josh Moten, a quarterback/athlete from Carson, Calif., is still awaiting certification from the NCAA Clearinghouse and can no longer participate in voluntary workouts with his future teammates until he is officially eligible. It could take anywhere from one to four weeks for that determination. Edward Nuckols, a defensive tackle from San Marcos, Calif., is also still awaiting certification from the NCAA Clearinghouse but also needs to do some work to become academically eligible. Hawkins indicated that Nuckols would tend to those academic matters this fall with the intent of grayshirting, or delaying his enrollment at CU until the 2010 spring semester, which commences in January. Earlier this summer, Hawkins announced that a third recruit, Shaun Simon, an offensive lineman from Broken Arrow, Okla., would also grayshirt while tending to academic matters and is also planning to enroll at Colorado in January. More to come on this story but this is not good if you think about the possibility of Nuckols playing a significant role in 2009. That isn't going to happen.
