Eric Bledsoe (born December 9, 1989) is an American basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers. He was selected by the Oklahoma City Thunder with the 18th overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He was regarded as one of the nation's top point guards while in high school. Bledsoe played for one year at the University of Kentucky, averaging 11.3 points per game. Although he is primarily a point guard, he played mostly shooting guard for the 353 Wildcats. In September 2010, it was reported that Bledsoe may have been ineligible to play his one season for Kentucky when discrepancies were found in his high school transcripts. The Alabama Public School System hired independent attorneys of the Birmingham-based law firm of White Arnold & Dow, led by former President of the Alabama State Bar Mark White and former Federal Court judge U.W. Clemon, to investigate claims that one of Bledsoe's grades was improperly changed.
