Former Georgetown forward Greg Whittington, who was dismissed from the Hoya program earlier this season in November, will not be enrolling at Rutgers as planned, according to Brendan Prunty of The Star Ledger.
Whittington wouldn’t have been eligible to play for the Scarlet Knights this season but, assuming he successfully enrolled at the university for the spring semester, would have been eligible for the 2014-15 season — Rutgers’ first in the Big Ten.
According to Prunty:
A team spokesman said that because Whittington was never officially enrolled and not a member of the university’s student-body or the team, no comment would be given on his decision not to join the school. However, with Rutgers’ 5 p.m. deadline to add/drop classes passing and Whittington not having enrolled, he will no longer be able to take classes this semester at the university.
As a sophomore in 2012-13, Whittington averaged 12.1 points and 7.0 rebounds in 35.2 minutes per game.
