University of Maryland Chancellor John B. Slaughter, head of the President's Commission of the NCAA, will be pressing to make freshmen ineligible for some high-pressure sports when the association meets this week in San Diego.
Slaughter told the Baltimore Sun he will bring to the body a resolution on eliminating freshman eligibility to see whether it might gain support.
The resolution, Item 54 in the official convention handbook, is sponsored by Maryland, UCLA, Miami (Fla.), the University of Minnesota, the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State.
Slaughter said he doesn't foresee legislation to ban freshmen from some varsity sports being passed until at least the January, 1988 convention.
