MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - The NCAA says it's working with Middle Tennessee and hasn't made a final decision on the eligibility of a freshman attempting to play after serving five years in the Marines.

Steven Rhodes played in a recreational league during his military service that could make him ineligible. An NCAA rule says student-athletes who don't enroll in college within a year of graduating high school will be charged one year of eligibility for every academic year they participate in organized competition.

The rule originally said competition during time in the armed services was exempt. That exemption no longer exists.

NCAA spokeswoman Stacy Osburn says ``the NCAA has provided an initial review of the case and will continue to work with the university.'' Osburn added ``a final decision has not yet been made.''
