That's what I was thinking, but they are right also really the longer they are on campus before season starts the better.

TBS reported earlier today that there are multiple sources who are confident that Smith, Lammons, and Green will enroll in Summer II and still have plenty of opportunities to make early contributions. It would still be better if they were here already. Getting an early start on the playbook and workouts would have been very beneficial. They'll have a steep learning curve in a very short amount of time.

I expect the 3-4 will create some different coverage responsibilities......which will add to what the DB's will need to know.

I agree with this. Cornerback and Running Back are the quickest transitions from high school to college because they are positions where raw talent is naturally on display. Not a whole lot of thinking going on.

However, there is a new rule in place that allows our coaches to have contact with players over the Summer. They are allotted a specific amount of hours they can spend with the players so having the young guys on campus early probably speeds up the transition process and given our need for depth at Corner, it would've been best if those guys could've enrolled this week. Not saying they are going to behind this Fall, but they may not be as far ahead as they could've been.

That leaves these guys for Fall admission:

Wideman
Lammons

I believe Smalls, Lammons, Green, and Blue have all been flagged by the Clearinghouse. I know Blue and Smalls said they got admitted into the university recently.

Doesn't sound like we are going to know anything about Wideman until after July.

told Malik that if he stopped by their stores, they'd give him a free meal

My son and I had to step and tell them to CHILL with the free food
offers. I know they meant well, but we had to tell our wives the problems
they could cause Malik if they did that.

If they do hook him up, I expect you to ban yourself for a week at their punishment

Fortunately that won't happen. My D I L and wife now fully understand
that even though they were trying to be nice, they could have gotten
Malik and even the team in trouble if they had done that.

also,

Malik thanked them politely and told them he couldn't do that, so he was
aware of the consequences as well.

The NCAA is lightening up on minor issues like this, and I expect within the next
few months to see this rule lifted, but for right now, it's best to steer away from
free stuff for the team until it's official

Getting flagged by the Clearinghouse is always concerning. These particular thing seem to drag out longer than they should. Really hurts not getting those DB's to campus sooner.

Have Lammons and Green been admitted to the university?

This seems to be the case with us.

Maybe it happens at other schools too, and I don't hear about it, but we've had several guys flagged that took most of their freshman season to get resolved.

If my memory serves me right, seems like Andrew Pinnock didn't get cleared until he'd lost about half of his first year, and we've had someone else recently that lost a couple of games waiting on clearance.

Honestly it wouldn't surprise me. We don't have the best track record in these situations. If they do eventually get cleared it will probably be a last minute thing.

Pretty sure Smith is enrolled. As far as the others, no telling when they'll get in. If they don't, CB will take a big hit.
