It is being reported by a couple different sources that the last scholarship for the men's basketball team in 2009 will now belong to guard Ian Pinckney. Pinckney, a 6-3 wing, was a qualifier out of high school but a question mark with the NCAA clearing house regarding a high school class led to him being a late qualifier and playing one season of junior college basketball in California. He would have played last season at Motlow Community College under former Kent State DOBO Mike Brown but suffered a stress fracture in his hand. He should have three years of eligibility remaining and there should be on official release on Monday. Pinckney is originally from Chicago.
