This is an odd headline, isn't it? It strongly implies that Zaire failed in some way and therefore is ineligible to play for Harvard specifically. But we on this board knew all along (and the body of the article makes it clear) that Zaire did not have some personal lack of qualification. No graduate transfer can play at any Ivy.

Zaire's only mistake or lack of qualification was thinking that he might have the opportunity to play at Harvard. That reflects poorly on his critical thinking as any cursory research would have revealed his ineligibility. Also, it does not reflect well on his personal judgment that he would publicly announce Harvard was an option without speaking to anybody at Harvard who could have quickly disabused him of that misunderstanding.

Even that article got it wrong. This is not correct: "A student-athlete who completes their undergraduate degree at an Ivy League school in fewer than four years may play during their graduate year at that same university." A five-year engineering student can use the fifth year for a fourth sports year, but not as a graduate student.
