Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News is reporting that St. John's Red Storm freshman Adonis De La Rosa may not play for the team this coming season due to academic issues.

The source told the publication that there are questions regarding De La Rosa's academic credentials. In addition, the paper states that he is not planning to transfer from the university, and maintains a desire to play for the Red Storm. The issue is reportedly regarding De La Rosa and his taking of standardized tests.

Rubin tweeted that De La Rosa's suspension will be at least for the semester.

Zach Braziller of the New York Post tweeted that this may be in regards to his SAT score, as seen below:

Should this be confirmed, this would be a big blow to the Red Storm who have already lost forward Keith Thomas due to eligibility issues as well. The depth in the frontcourt was already very thin, but with De La Rosa's looming ineligibility, the resources have gotten even scarcer.
