LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- ESPN.com is reporting that Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive says there are questions regarding the eligibility of highly touted Kentucky freshman John Wall.
Slive says that there are "amateur issues" surrounding Wall and Mississippi State freshman Renardo Sidney.
ESPN.com reported Thursday that Wall's issues stem from his relationship with AAU coach Brian Clifton, who was a certified agent between 2007 and 2008. Wall made at least two unofficial recruiting visits to Kentucky during that period.
Kentucky spokesman DeWayne Peevy said the school had no comment, but added all players are considered eligible unless it is otherwise noted.
