Highly touted recruit Davlyon Nixon signed a National Letter of Intent with Iowa in July, but was ruled academically ineligible by the NCAA.

According to a report by SB Nation, Nixon’s National Letter of Intent with Iowa is likely still valid.

However, the NCAA will surely have its attention drawn to this and it’ll be interesting to see what happens, if anything.
