    That is just stupid. You could have your entire team enter the draft and come back if that’s the case.

    No I said just one scholarship. Not five for the whole team. It would not be a big blue blood thing. It would help schools like Iowa State, Minnesota and so on. The blue bloods already have enough talent. Teams like ours could bring back a player that didn’t make it. Im not talking everyone that goes to the draft you get an extra scholly. Just one per team.

    Then every team could send their best player to the draft even (if they obviously wouldn't be drafted) just to get an extra scholarship for the next year.

    Which is exactly what every team is doing anyway. This at least gives a coach a way to plan for it. We could take a Bolton and if Wggs decided to come back we could give him a scholarship for the year

    What? There isn't a special "pro" extra scholarship so now sure how that is what "every team is doing"? Prohm will be able to plan for his roster on May 29 (assuming he isn't sure on LW's plans right now).

    Your hypothetical would mean all teams would get a 14th scholarship. I'd argue it hurt ISU because the North Carolina/s and Kentucky's would get a 14th scholarship too likely filling them with high level talent thus thinning the available players available.

    I am pretty confident that Prohm would take Bolton today if he wanted to commit. I assume Bolton will want to see if LW returns and what his playing time would be. Having him wait until after the draft to see in your scenario would prolong his decision and hurt ISU's chances.

    There's 13 scholarships, that's plenty. The draft and transfers have changed the spring recruiting landscape, but there's still 13 scholarships available to teams that normally only play 8-9. The coaches are paid handsomely to figure it out, and more importantly, get it right.

    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.

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

    edit: @Halincandenza beat me to it.
