Athlete alleges grade manipulation in lawsuit

Another basketball player is suing his former school, this time over alleged discrepancies in transcripts that the athlete claims cost him a scholarship.

Kobe Eubanks, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from New York, believes altered transcripts from Plantation American Heritage School left him below the NCAA’s minimum standards for scholarship freshmen.

Eubanks attended the Florida-based American Heritage School before transferring to Centereach Our Savior New American School in New York.

From the Miami Herald:

Eubanks committed to Baylor, one of more than 10 schools recruiting him, after spending his senior year at Centereach (New York) Our Savior New American School. He transferred there after two years at American Heritage, during which he made the Miami Herald’s second-team All-Broward. ESPN rated him a four-star recruit, and 247sports.com rated him a three-star recruit.

The suit claims that American Heritage provided Our Savior with a transcript that stated Eubanks’ grade-point average upon leaving American Heritage was 2.5, then later another transcript that put his GPA at 2.37, but certified to Our Savior that the 2.5 transcript was correct. The different numbers, the suit alleges, came from Eubanks’ grades being altered.

The lawsuit is asking for at least $75, 0, according to the story.

This is the second time in the last month we’ve learned that a basketball player is suing his former school. The first lawsuit centered around an athlete who claimed he was cut from his high school team over comments he made on Twitter. The suit was eventually dropped.
