Four-star Chris Sandifer doesn't qualify at UTEP, will enroll in JC

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Chris Sandifer was a quality get for UTEP when he committed to the Miners in October. However, Sandifer won't be suiting up for Tim Floyd's program this season.

Sandifer failed to qualify at UTEP and will instead enroll at Chipola College (Fla.), multiple sources told CBSSports.com.

Sandifer, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Taft (Calif.), originally committed to Missouri last summer before opening his recruitment in September. The lefty was one of the more dangerous scorers on the West coast, capable of putting up big numbers when his outside shot is falling. He could be one of the top bucket-getters at the junior college level.

He was rated as a four-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite.

Sources also indicated that fellow incoming freshman Shaq Carr has failed to qualify at UTEP. He too is likely to go the junior college route, likely at the College of Southern Idaho. Carr was rated a three-star recruit at 247Sports.
