Powe Update

Here is the Powe update from the Clarion Ledger Beat Writer Website:

I just got off the phone with Don Jackson this morning and have a couple newsworthy bits:

• First, he believes the NCAA committees will be hearing Jerrell Powe's appeals on Thursday. Jackson said he sees no reason why there won't be a decision that day if the committees do meet. He believes the decisions will be favorable for Powe.

• Second, he has requested that Powe is allowed to present his case as part of their hearing. He said it would then be a "formal hearing" with both sides of the appeal presented. If that happens, Powe would have to speak to them via teleconference. That's the way the committees meet since members are spread out around the country.(Robbie Neiswanger)
