(Fayetteville-AP) -- Defensive tackle Bryan Watson of Houston Lee has failed to academically qualify on his last attempt on the Scholastic Assessment Test.

Watson, an Arkansas signee, said that he scored lower than he had on a previous try. Because he has dyslexia, Watson could still be granted a waiver by the N-C-A-A and be fully qualified.

Arkansas recruiting coordinator Fitz Hill has said that junior college was doubtful for Watson. Hill said he is optimistic that Watson will be granted a waiver.
