Joint Statement from Clemson and NCAA on red-shirt freshman Ray Ray McElrathbey who has been granted temporary custody of his 11-year-old brother Fahmarr


"The media reports about circumstances involving a Clemson University football student-athlete (Ray Ray McElrathbey) have not represented the facts. Although the NCAA had no knowledge of the circumstances surrounding the student-athlete until today (Wednesday), it is working with Clemson and the Atlantic Coast Conference to assist the student-athlete. Although conference and NCAA rules generally prohibit benefits to student-athletes beyond a grant-in-aid, individual circumstances can and are taken into consideration in unusual situations. The University is preparing a petition for waiver to determine if funds and contributions can be collected to help the young man and his brother."
