First off... the NCAA committee is terrible. If you truly care about the player... give him the opportunity to get a degree to support his family instead of forcing him to take the risk of Pro-Basketball before he decides if he's ready. It should be his choice. Second, It sounds like Gilstrap will attempt the pro-route rather than pay his own way through another year of school. Which is the obvious choice when you're supporting a family and nobody can blame him. You need to take the option where you can earn money rather than spend it. So my question is this: Does Gilstrap leaving without graduating hurt our program's graduation rate and possibly affect scholarships even though the NCAA are the ones that aren't allowing him to have another year on scholarship?
