    Someone please explain

    So I was looking at commitment list for ISU and because of the Shontrelle Johnson situation I looked at Florida's list. I noticed a bunch of Florida players have already signed a LOI. I thought it was strange that Florida was bringing in so many JUCO's so I looked closer to find that they are all HS. How did they get away with this, I didn't think HS could sign until late January?

    Re: Someone please explain

    good question...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    They can't unless the NCAA allows it or something i'm guessing

    Their Florida, they along with USC, they bend the rules, now if ISU does that, we're put on the Death Bed.

    More and more schools are doing it. Recently its been a trend for qb's that have a shot at starting so they can go thru spring ball

    It does happen. The reason why more don't do it is that most likely when they start their high school career, they are not planning on graduating early. So they plan as if they are going to be there a full 4 years.

    Re: Someone please explain

    What basketball game was I watching where they mentioned something like this? The announcers said the kid was 18, and had decided to graduate a year early and so would have been a senior this year, but is instead playing in college.

    Was it 'cuse the other night? I'm pretty sure I heard the same thing at some point Wednesday night and I only watched 'cuse and Iowa State/Duke.

    That is what I was thinking. That's about the only non-ISU game (other than Kansas-Cornell) that I've seen lately.

    Andre Dawkins for Duke did it. You prolly heard it during the ISU/Duke game. He actually has been playing the whole year after graduating early last year. He is a 2010 guy, but graduated with the 2009 folks.

    I'm pretty sure it was a Cornell kid. It was during the ISU Duke game because that's the only one I watched and I remember it too.

    In Basketball, I think it was Bill Walker at KSU did the same thing. He only played at KSU for 1 and a half years I believe

    Yep, you are correct.
