Wideman - if he qualifies - definitely will not redshirt. Wideman is physically ready to play now and has a bigger frame than Sawyer.

Thanks, wasnt sure how the JUCO compared to PREP in keeping players committed to their original schools, but if we placed him there then we should be in good shape. Now lets just hope Sawyer keeps up with his end on the academics.

He's apparently enrolling in January 2015 so he won't get that Spring semester at JUCO. I don't really know how he would get three if he's planning to enroll i. January.

Default Re: 2014 Signee - Dante Sawyer

If he had graduated would he have gone prep? Is he going JUCO because he got a GED? Or does it all come down to grades? I'm just curious of the decision to do JUCO vs Prep and the reasons for it.

Looking forward to him getting here regardless!

Maybe he is starting express classes next week. I'm not sure if JUCO offers express classes, but if they do then he could still enroll this semester.

He got his GED and enrolled in JUCO today.

So he'll have this Spring, Summer, and Fall.

Ok. That makes sense. I didn't think about JUCO's having those types of classes.

Probably for the best.
It sounds like he still wants to be here, and is going to do what it takes to get here.

Terrible news. We need guys who can play NOW.

Chances of him ever making it in to SC are in jeopardy.

Now taking all of these DL commits is starting to make sense.

Yeah, this isn't good. He would have played from day one. I agree about his chances too-have to wonder if he'll ever be able to make it in.

Smart move with the Mississippi juco. We place a lot of guys at Georgia Military, but that would have kept him in UGA territory which ight have led to a flip. In Mississippi, he will be away from distractions and ne able to focus on academics and football.

Considering he has to go JUCO I think we could not ask for a better plan. We all would have loved to have him this year but it just wasn't meant to be. With that said he will make a huge addition to the Team in the near future.

Hate not seeing Sawyer come in yet but I think he will still come when he gets his grades together. I am looking forward to seeing McClain play.

how does taking 2 classes in summer school equate to a full semester of taking 5 classes.

I just read the GED and he is enrolling in JUCO this week comment.....thanks.

How does a guy that is struggling with his grades pass his GED. His test scores must have not been very good either.

I guess they just have to be enrolled for 3 semesters (not sure about credit requirements). They are counting this current semester as 1 of the 3 required semesters, so I imagine he is enrolled in some express classes for this semester. This Summer and the Fall semester will be his other 2 required enrolled semesters. His grades must have been bad enough to know his only route was JUCO, but getting his GED allows him to enter JUCO early, and I'm sure the coaches thought this out. This may be a new way of getting JUCOs on campus early. Just drop out of HS, get your GED and enter JUCO early.

I wrote the first sentence, then went back and added the other comments. Now that I know he is enrolling in JUCO now, the summer classes will make it easier for him during the school year.

So he is already enrolled and attending a Juco? Maybe it is for the best, maybe he needed time to mature off the field,
