Wish it could have gone the prep route rather than JUCO. I also hope we place him in a school that has tight ties to us, we need to hang on to him.

You'd be surprised. If he does a great job during his time at JUCO, other teams could become interested. Most players who go the JUCO route don't sign with the team that originally recruited them.

I understood the intent was fall semester 2014, spring semester 2015 and summer session 2015.

Actually, I understand he was enrolling in JUCO either today or tomorrow somehow.

Default Re: Dante sawyer to go juco route

Am I completely out of line when I say that I can NOT understand how these kids are not eligible? That is their only job and in return they get a free education, free room and board, and possibly a shot at the NFL. How can you be sure they will put in the work to stay eligible? Or if they can't be bothered to make decent grades can we trust them to do the work they need in the weight room...

Maybe I am wrong?

a lot of them do very poorly in the 9th and 10th grades before they have figured out how good they are, then it's hard to make that up.

From what I heard its not that bad. He got his GED and already enrolled. This semester counts. So he will be a gamecock the following summer with 4 years to play 3.

Default Re: Dante sawyer to go juco route

We used to have a pretty good relationship with Ga. Military College as a JUCO. We've has several players that signed with us, then went there and re-signed with us. I don't know where he's going or what the options are, but we have had success in the past with this. Its too bad we don't have a good JUCO program somewhere in Columbia where we could keep an eye on them and kind of keep them in the loop.

Well said.

People have to remember, a lot of kids that get recruited come from shaky home situations, or go to shaky schools. In a lot of cases they may not have anyone in their family or role models who have graduated high school, much less college. Once you're behind the 8 ball, it's difficult to make up ground.

Regalcock explained it well. The guys on 107.5 said yesterday he enrolled in a juco in Mississippi.
