NOTEBOOK / KIRBY LEE : Back McCullough to Play at Pasadena City College

August 18, 1994|KIRBY LEE

Former Muir High running back Saladin McCullough will play for Pasadena City College in the fall.

McCullough signed a letter of intent to enroll at USC after gaining 2,142 yards and scoring 36 touchdowns in his senior season in 1992.

But the prep All-American was never admitted to USC because his Scholastic Aptitude Test score of about 1,200 was challenged by the Educational Testing Service, the Princeton, N.J. group that oversees the test.

The dispute went to arbitration, but the challenge was upheld. Last fall, McCullough took the American College Testing exam but scored a non-qualifying 14.

McCullough, who attended summer school classes at Pasadena, could transfer to USC after two seasons at the community college level.
