    Question --

    I thought, back in the day, it was 12 scholarships per team.

    It is obviously now 13.

    Did that change at some point, or am I remembering it incorrectly?

    Don’t think it was ever 12. Thought it was 15 at one time though.

    Or the said player just keeps the coach informed on if he’s planning on coming back or not.

    Giving every team an extra scholarship takes more talented players away from schools like Iowa State and below and makes the blue bloods better.

    Yeah I did. I actually am friends with two college coaches and both of them said basically the same thing. One is an SEC assistant coach and it’s simethkng they are going to bring up. It’s not a high profile SEC team either.

    I'm friends with a college AD and he thinks it's an insane idea.

    This tweet will make someone like Jay Bilas, who is pretty pro-player movement, very unhappy. Coach who is paid switches school and is "immediately available" but unpaid player follows the coach's move and he has to sit out a year.

    Rayjon Tucker isn’t going to graduate from UALR.

    Credit to staff for shifting focus to Bolton.

    Dodged a bullet there.

    Only think I have seen is that he is hasn't graduated this semester but he still has the summer to complete coursework.

    Link? Even if he's not graduating this spring he can still finish up over the summer.

    edit: @Halincandenza beat me to it.

    Apparently some rumor that from what I can tell started on a local radio show that he may not have graduated this semester. That then turned into people on twitter saying he was academically ineligible, which is obviously something different completely. There hasn't been any official word on any of this and like you said, he can graduate over the summer.

    That’s assuming UALR offers the classes he needs to graduate over the summer and that he has the mental fortitude to pass them without any of the academic assistance he received while on the MBB team

    No reason to assume otherwise. You'd think that he would have gotten his ducks in a row and made sure that graduating from UALR in the summer was even possible before he went the grad transfer route.

    That’s pretty big. A lot of west coast kids will be able to stay on west coast without having to do down to a mid major

    No reason to think he can't do these things. Plus like I said, right now it is just twitter rumors. Nothing confirmed from reputable source. But will likely find out soon enough. Deadline to withdraw from draft is coming up.

    Yeah, May 29 will make a lot of things clearer for a lot of teams/players.
