BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WVLT) -- Former Kentucky basketball player Eric Bledsoe had discrepancies between high school records and his transcript, according to a report by the Birmingham News.

The result of the investigation could mean Bledsoe was ineligible for his freshman season at Kentucky, when he helped lead the Wildcats to an SEC championship and Elite Eight appearance.

Bledsoe's transcript says he received an A in Algebra 3, while records at his high school indicate he got a C. The A in Algebra 3 was key in rendering Bledsoe eligible at Kentucky.

The University of Kentucky had no comment on the report.
