As for Smalls, some of you out there with subscriptions to these "insiders" should ask those guys about him, and report back here...

Still awaiting word on a grade for a summer class. He could still possibly qualify or go to prep school, either way January is the earliest he'll enroll.

I like the enroll in Jan option best because of his injury last season.....he was going to RS in 2014 anyway, but if he comes in Jan 2015, he still has 5 years.

He made the grades he needed this summer. He will enroll in January 2015 and be eligible to count back to 2014 which is really important.

Default Re: 2015 Greyshirt - Darin Smalls

This update contradicts what was posted above.

Quote:
Former Summerville DB Darin Smalls committed to USC last year with an eye towards playing right away because he knew the Gamecocks needed cornerbacks this season. But those hopes were doused by torn knee ligaments in the third week of the season. And adding true insult to the injury, the NCAA prevented Smalls from enrolling this fall.

according to pay sites, he needed to take a course or two this summer and make passing grades, which apparently he did. I have never read anything about his test being flagged by the NCAA. maybe Korn knows something the other sites don't, or he doesn't know what he's talking about......this flagging test scores is the same bullshit Green and Lammons had to deal with.

even if he had been able to enroll this summer, he was never going to play this fall because of his knee injury from last year.

I feel like this has a lot to do with it. It's essentially an extra redshirt for him. Even if he didn't redshirt next year, he'd still have the possibility for a med red if he got injured down the road. If he came in and redshirted this year, that option would be off the table if it was ever needed.

If true, it is another sign the NCAA is nothing but a bloated waste of space.
Flag a guy because he improved too much?

Glad I'm not an athlete, or they would've flagged me from improving from my sophomore to junior year....(I was a 2.5 student my sophomore year, went to a 3.5 my junior year...started buckling down so I could get to USC as a regular student).

This is what I heard as well. He is past the date to enroll for this semester. So he won't be able to enroll until January.

Was going to post something about how subjective and inefficient the NCAA is but that horse is dead already. I'll just be glad when it's removed as the governing body and replaced with a more comprehensive set of standards and guidelines.

flagging a guy for improving too much is not a waste. Derrick Rose taught us that. Like it or not, kids can cheat and people around them can help and encourage them to cheat. That's just how it is. I'd rather make sure everything is kosher than take a risk and learn a kid cheated down the road.

This is actually a blessing in disguise for Darin. Yes, he does miss a semester of school but since he was going to redshirt anyway and couldn't enroll until August at the earliest a greyshirt actually gives him the potential of an extra semester and summer of college. Plus his commitment counts back so it still doesn't effect this years numbers. It's a win/win situation.

Not for him. If I'm reading this correctly he has to sit at home and put his life on hold for the next 4 months because of NCAA incompetence. It might be a "win" for USC's number but it's not a win for Darin.
