not sure

Maybe he was invited, but rejected the offer? I know that probably doens't make any sense, but I can't think of any other reasons.

John Wall = 5 year Senior = 2009 Draft Class?

If he failed 10th Grade, then his original graduating class should've been last year. Isn't the Collective Barganing Agreement's draft rule based on your original graduating class or is it based on age? He should try and get into the draft, there's got to be some big shot agent/lawyer that would take that on, where does everybody think he would go if he were to somehow get in the draft? I've never seen him play, but there seems to be a consensus among "experts" that he's the next big, athletic, dominant, combo (ala D Wade). Does anybody think he would go before Blake? I imagine somebody might just do that based on his supposed superior physical gifts. Isn't the rule all about your original graduating class? I think Wall is even older than Rubio by a month. If Rubio can get in then there's got to be some kind of way for him to get in too. Did Mayo fail a grade too? If you know, which one was it, that's messed up to think that Wall failed a grade when he was 16 and as a result he can't declare for a year. It just seems something's not right.

that would be amazing, but i

Well if Wall failed a year

Well if Wall failed a year in High School he certainly deserved it if he can't live up to academic standards in the 10th grade year.

Reclass

john wall is a 5th year senior because he did sophomore year (I believe, someone correct me) twice because he TRANSFERRED and didn't fail. Or so I've been told.

Grad class

Wall could not enter the draft this year even though he was held back a year or a transfer. The rule states that a player must be 19 and must have been out of high school for at least one year. So john wall is unfortunately ineligeble for the 09' draft.

McDonald's All American game 5 year rule.

McDonald's game always had that rule. The reason why OJ Mayo could play was that he was a 4 year high school student. In the state of Kentucky, you can play varsity basketball in the 8th, which he did.
