What is the reason you don't want to hire this person?
The EEO is concerned with discrimination. Discrimination occurs if you failed to hire otherwise qualified applicants based on their age, disability, national origin, pregnancy status, race, religion, or sex. You can indicate that of the 14 applications, you only believed that 1 was qualified for the job, despite their academic qualifications. You can state specifically why their interviews didn't impress you and why you felt they weren't good candidates for the position. As long as the reason you didn't hire the applicants wasn't based on one of the above protected qualities, the reasons you failed to hire these applicants is legal.
