(AP) — Top recruit Jahii Carson has been ruled ineligible to play for Arizona State in the 2011-12 season.

Carson didn't meet the NCAA's initial academic eligibility standards and retook the ACT test, but the school recently learned he had come up just short and appealed to the NCAA.

The NCAA's Eligibility Center ruled on Friday that Carson can't play but will be allowed to practice with the team this season.

Carson is one of the highest-rated recruits at Arizona State and for coach Herb Sendek, who recently had a two-year contract extension approved by the school's board of regents.

Carson was projected as the starting point guard for the Sun Devils, who are 3-5 without him.
