FSU released a statement Friday night, and like a lot of late Friday news releases, this one wasn't good. Aaron Thomas has been declared ineligible. The full statement reads:
Florida State University Athletics announced today that junior guard Aaron Thomas has been declared ineligible. The Seminoles left today for South Bend, Indiana where they will take on Notre Dame tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. in the ACC opener for both teams. Coach Hamilton will have no further comment at this time on the announcement.
Thomas is the team's leading scorer and arguably the best perimeter defender in the conference.
