Memphis School System Closes Investigation Into Ex-Auburn Player’s Transcript

jovon-robinsonJovon Robinson probably could have helped rushing-impaired Auburn last fall on the football field.  But the freshman running back from Memphis never got the opportunity due to issues in the classroom.  The NCAA learned that Robinson had had his high school transcript changed and ruled him ineligible as a result.

Now, the Memphis City School system has closed its investigation into the case.  The findings?  Other than Wooddale High School guidance counselor Valerie Starks-Sykes, no other system employee did anything wrong.  Starks-Sykes admitted to making the changes and suggested in internal emails that “she was certain someone had asked her to make the changes but was reluctant to name anyone who may have been involved.”

Unless she comes forward with a name or other new evidence pops up, the Memphis City System considers “the matter to be closed.”

The NCAA did ask Auburn coaches about the Robinson situation, but it did not send an official letter of inquiry to the school regarding that case.  However, reports late last year stated that the NCAA had “spent weeks” investigating the football program.  Gene Chizik and his staff were fired after the season, in which the Tigers finished a shocking 3-9.  (Corrected: Story initially read 4-8)

Robinson has continued to say that he will be back at Auburn.  For now, it’s still a wait-and-see situation.
