Carson apparently was one ACT point or one letter grade in one class away from keeping his eligibility according to, and the NCAA repeal process unfortunately did not work either.  He will be allowed to practice with the team but not play, and will enter next season as a sophomore. He can earn back his lost season if he can prove to the school he will graduate within a certain timeline

A former student at Mesa High, Carson is ASU's highest-rated in-state recruit on the squad and is seen as one of the Pac-12's top freshmen.
