    If he graduated from high school, then all it would take is for him to get a high enough qualifying score on one of the standardized college placement tests. You don't have to be in prep school to take those.

    If he didn't graduate, or didn't fulfill enough core courses at the high school level, then he'd need the prep school courses to substitute for items on the checklist he didn't complete.

    I'm not defending him, btw, just pointing out how he could still qualify now, despite the prep school situation.

    Let's not forget our star basketball recruit made it here despite being dismissed from his prep school.

    basically all the kid did was smoke some dope to get kicked off the team.

    if he was robbing houses or robbing people then I would say for sure screw him.

    if he does make it I am sure Shafer will cut no slack for another violation

    Do you think he was watching Ish thinking why can't that be me?

    This kid has had more than one chance. In high school he needed to focus enough to get the score he needed and didn't do it. Then he needed to focus at Milford so he could get to SU this winter. He got tossed. Time to move on

    Reason he got canned is not as important as the fact that now it is difficult for him to become eligible academically. It probably is also a knock on his maturity and character, when you know the possible consequences and still do something stupid it says a lot.

    Sure do.

    But I think the kicker was AJ and his showing that has him thinking hard.

    KJ tweeted out about AJ and his performance. Kid now knows he really messed up an opportunity. I truly believe that.

    I hope Williams makes it here. He and Ish on opposite sides would be sweet.

    I would think Junior College would be his next step? Guess depends what scores he needs to improve.

    I agree. Just get here. If he gets in trouble we will punish him. We need playmakers, there not all going to be saints.

    Williams was our most highly rated WR recruit in a LONG time. I'd like to see him make it here, as well--provided he shapes up and gets with the program. If he's going to be dependable, I'm all for it. If he's going to continue being an unreliable distraction with 99 problems, we might be better off without him.

    I've heard some things that give me pause about his character, but hopefully this is a wake up call. He's got a lot of minor red flags that collectively start to paint a consistent picture about his character. He's running out of chances.

    The wake up call should have been not qualifying out of high school, not this transgression
