Attorney General Morrisey pens letter to NCAA asking for Battle decision to be overturned

One week ago, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey issued a statement demanding answers from NCAA pertaining the decision to deny a waiver for immediate eligibility from RaeQuan Battle, a 6-foot-5 wing expected to be an integral part of the Mountaineers had he been given clearance to play.

Morrisey followed up by penning a letter Tuesday to NCAA President Charlie Baker, urging the NCAA to overturn the decision and grant Battle the transfer waiver for immediate eligibility.

In the letter, Morrisey says the NCAA’s decision to reject Battle’s waiver for the organization’s “year-in residence” requirement is wrong and that it conflicts with the NCAA’s own guidelines and principles. 

Morrisey goes on to add that the NCAA’s decision to arbitrarily limit student choice through the transfer guidelines raises significant antitrust-related concerns.
