USC Freshman Washington Set to Retake Entrance Exam

October 29, 1994|ELLIOTT ALMOND and EARL GUSTKEY

Delon Washington, the USC freshman tailback whose college entrance exam score was challenged last month, is expected to retake the test within a week.

Washington, who gained 109 yards in the Trojans' season-opening 24-17 victory over Washington, was given time to prepare before retaking the American College Testing (ACT) exam, a source said.

Washington's score was challenged by the ACT because of an unusual increase between his first and second test scores. USC officials declared him ineligible to play until the situation was resolved.

Washington's score on his upcoming test will determine whether the result he achieved to certify freshman eligibility will be validated. If not, he will be ineligible for the season.

Washington said he would not discuss the situation until it is concluded.

Washington has practiced with the team sporadically but has not played since the second game of the season against Penn State.
