    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

    sure he got tossed from milford but after this reply to syrfootball tweet on AJ As QB he's the best QB you'll see...he can do it all, and with me right next to him...it's even worse Made me think that there not fully closing the book on him.

    No problem with him coming here, just think he made it hard to achieve from a purely academics standpoint. He can still do it but it will now require a bit more effort than otherwise.

    I saw that tweet today. I thought he him coming here wasn't happening. He still has Syracuse committ on his Twitter page also. I'm so confused.

    My thought is he wants to come here for 2 reasons: 1. His other D1 opportunities dried up and 2. He sees AJ starting and wants to be a part of that. What the coaching staff wants is what's important now.

    What keeps him out of Orange football is inability to meet the academic standards for the school tp accept him. It ain't gonna happen.

    I would be okay with a little cheating to win at this point. Come on Texas wants to pay kids. Nc is greasing them buy. Old miss is doing something, no way they get that class if they didn't (movie blue chips comes to mind). Nd has a bunch of cheaters. Let's right this ship with not so smart players that can run and catch footballs for touchdowns. Let's do this.

    True, but it is only a standardized test score. It isn't an insurmountable obstacle.

    He doesn't need to go to prep school to retake the SAT or ACT. And if he can't attain the necessary score, then he won't be here--simple as that.
