AUSTIN AP The NCAA says it is convinced that Texas officials had no idea a 30yearold football player had changed his identity to extend his college eligibility David Berst director of enforcement at the NCAA said that there were no plans to investigate how Ron Weaver managed to enroll at Texas as 23year old Joel Ron McKelvey and play a lim ited role as a backup cornerback for the Longhoms this season Weaver had exhausted his eligibility at Sacramento State He used the Social Security number of a Salinas man named Joel McKelvey to change his identity and enter a Los Angeles junior college as a freshman before transfer ring to Texas last year All I know is what I am hearing from the Berst said But if indeed the institution had no knowledge and the young man was not a significant contributor to the program I would not expect it to be an issue with Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said Tuesday the school would hire a private investigator to get to the bottom of the matter The school is considering suing Weaver for the cost of his scholarship Federal authorities also want to ques tion Weaver about possible wire and mail fraud and Social Security viola tions We will pursue every trail including possible criminal action to help the appropriate authorities get to the bottom of Dodds said We owe that to our faculty students coaches athletes alum ni and Weaver has declined to be interviewed since quietly leaving the Texas team He departed while the Longhrons were preparing for last Sundays Sugar Bowl loss to Virginia Tech His sister Bonita Money has said Weaver will apologize to Texas offi cials and tell his side of the story most likely to a television audience For those who believe Texas should be held accountable for playing an inel igible player Berst
