The controversy over the admission of former Notre Dame basketball player Jelani Jenkins to Ohio State is one of the major stories in the Italian Serie A, as a number of colleges and universities are reportedly admitting the player to private universities.
According to the New York Times, the controversy over Jenkins has caused a backlash among the students of the elite college.
Jenkins was recruited by Notre Dame after being selected in the third round of the 2016 NBA draft.
