Re: Article: New freshmen eligibility standards coming
IMO, this is to clean up the NCAA Clearinghouse. I think it'll get rid of the cases where a player is accepted into the university but is flagged by the Clearinghouse.
So now if a player is accepted into the university, but doesn't meet the new requirements, they don't have to go elsewhere .. they can enroll and sit out a year.
I could be totally wrong, but that is how I understand it.
