Florida St. frosh Xavier Rathan-Mayes ineligible for 2013-14 season

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Florida State freshman Xavier Rathan-Mayes will not be eligible for the upcoming season, head coach Leonard Hamilton announced Monday.

Hamilton said Rathan-Mayes did not get through the NCAA Clearinghouse.

Sources tell CBSSports.com that the NCAA did not accept a full year of credits he took at a high school in North Carolina. Rathan-Mayes previously attended Christian Faith Center Academy (N.C.). Florida State is continuing to work with the NCAA to get the issue resolved.

Rathan-Mayes, a 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Canada, played last season at Huntington Prep (W.Va.). He was a consensus top-50 recruit and was expected to be the key perimeter option for the Seminoles in 2013-14.
