I don't have that answer.

Louisville can take partial qualifiers. However I suspect when they move to the ACC that practice will be banned.

Right now, schools have to get NCAA approval for a partial qualifier. Non-qualifiers are not allowed in Division 1. (Don't get caught up in the differing terminology) Some major conferences, such as the SEC & ACC, do not allow this practice. However, the NCAA will allow starting in 2016 schools to accept "partial qualifiers" same as in the old days, where the first year the PQ can pratice only and after 4 years if on track to graduate can apply for a 5th year. It will be up to the invidual conferences to decide how they will enforce it among thier individual memebrs. Some interesting info in the below link.http://koochnation.com/2011/09/29/se...al-qualifiers/

I'm glad to see the NCAA is gong back to the old rules. It allows a kid to prove himself academically for a year, then be allowed to play in year 2.

Default Re: Davon Durant Thread (2013 Prospect)

I really have mixed feelings about this.
First, it is great to give a kid a chance to prove himself. But did he not have 4 years in High School to do that. In college, you have to mature and take care of your own business. You do not have parents looking over your shoulder.

Second, I have made a lot of mistakes in my life. I am glad I was given second and sometimes third chances.

Like I said mixed feelings

I think many kids have a very tough home environment to live in and giving them a chance at college is maybe their only chance to prove they can get it done in the classroom.

Kaleb Chalmers discussion reminded me of this recruit. I wonder if he will be a Gamecock in the end.

He was the #4 player in the state coming out of HS. He is a violent hitter. Very strong, but hopefully has been working on wrapping up rather than just trying to knock a head off. He's quick for a ILB.

So you have to act like a mature adult in HS when you are not one? Some people are mature at an early age, some are not. Some never become mature. Some it just takes time. One thing I do notice is that a lot of these kids are Greenwood kids. It makes me wonder about who is trying to teach them there.
