    Reasons why Lockett wont be playing at Minnesota

    With Mbakwe on the roster for next year minnesota will have 4 seniors(one being mbakwe), 4 juniors, 4 sophomores, and 2 freshmen that will be on scholarship. So with Mbakwe they have 14 scholarships filled, without him 13 filled. If mbakwe comes back 2 players will have to transfer to make room for Lockett. If he leaves still one person will have to transfer. The chances of lockett playing at minnesota are slim i think.

    Re: Reasons why Lockett wont be playing at Minnesota

    I believe that Minny has filed an waiver request for an additional scholarship (14 total) due to the Mbakwe situation. They would still have to jettison one player to get Lockett if the waiver was granted.

    I'm not predicting that waiver and it may not even be true.

    That would be total BS if they got a waiver plus a 6th year of eligibility for him.

    pretty sure the waiver would be voided if someone transfered out.

    I didn't even know there was such thing to request a waiver for an extra scholarship especially considering the fact that they already granted him an extra year of eligibility.

    I cannot imagine that they would get to go over their scholarship limit for this reason. They already benefit by getting a player for a 6th year.

    I guess they could always force players out to make room for Lockett. I'm sure it happens all the time in sports.

    It may just be a rumor. Nebby was granted an extra scholly not long ago but it was different circumstances.

    Do you know when Minnesota requested the waiver for the 14th scholarship according to the rumor that you heard?

    No. I barely gave it a second thought until I saw this thread.

    Minnesota definitely has a mess. They got their best player a 6th year and now they don't have a scholarship for him or someone else. Pretty sure they will have to force at least one player out if they get denied their waiver for a 14th scholarship.
