Coach Fran Dunphy confirmed through a spokesperson on Sunday that freshman power forward Michael Eric’s academic record is in the hands of the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse and his playing status is in question for the 2007-08 campaign.

Eric came to Temple from The School at Church Farm in Paoli, Pa. According to a source, the issue with Eric’s academic record relates to the fact that he attended school in the U.S.A. for only a few years. Eric is from Nigeria.

Dunphy did not confirm the final status of the Clearinghouse decision. A source has informed OwlsDaily.com that Eric’s eligibility appeal has already been denied and he won’t be playing this year.

The Owls have two other big forwards in their freshman class – Lavoy Allen and Craig Williams. Junior center Sergio Olmos is the only other big man on the roster.
