Eric Bledsoe report to be released Friday

September 23, 2010 

The report on the investigation into former Kentucky basketball player Eric Bledsoe's high school grades in Birmingham, Ala., is scheduled to be released Friday.

Birmingham City Schools spokesman Michaelle Chapman said the report, completed by outside attorneys at the request of the Alabama High School Athletic Association, "should be made public as part of a special called Board of Education meeting at 4 p.m."

The attorneys were to investigate Bledsoe's academic records at Hayes and Parker high schools compared with his final transcript.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound guard averaged 11.3 points, 2.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds a game in his freshman season at UK before being drafted 18th overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder and traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.
