Exactly! Why burn your first year of eligibility on the final two months? Better to get acclimated to college, and Walter's system, and have 4 full years to play.

Unless Walter thinks this kid is the next coming of Michael Jordan, and could put the Aces over top this year. They may be just one GREAT player away from a special year. This is just a crazy thought on a gray day, but who knows.

Correct, I do agree, if he truly is enrolled at mid-semester it would probably be best to redshirt and then let him get acclimated to the style and level of play in practice. It would be yet another guy to look forward to seeing next season. I'm just glad to hear we are allegedly going to get some size!

Key point, be patient, never judge a coach on Year 1!

Not saying it won’t happen, but what high school player is going to give up his last two months or so of high school ball unless they are scared of an injury, and another thing that hasn’t been mentioned is this. Would he have to pay his way until the end of the year? Would the scholarship that was given to Will before the retirement be able to be “recycled” at the end of the semester?

If it is Dixon, he would only be giving up a semester of JUCO ball.

Dixon is one thing (although I’m not sure about mid year transfers from JUCO to four year for athletics), but the post that started this said high school. Since the man reporting has been spot on with info so far, I have to take it at face value. This is a high school kid that we have heard nothing about to this point.

I believe I found the rule about participation during 2nd semester:

"Students must be enrolled full-time (twelve or more credits) at the college where they have chosen to participate when the regular season schedule of a sport begins. Students not enrolled during the term when the season begins remain ineligible throughout the season schedule unless they enroll on the first possible enrollment date following:

Their release from Active Armed Services of the United States with a discharge other than dishonorable.
Their return from a religious mission.
Their graduation from a high school or receipt of an equivalency diploma.
Their transfer from an NJCAA member college which has dropped a sport after the school year begins.

Students that satisfy one of the four exceptions become eligible after the previous term has ended upon registration as a full-time student for the new term. (Students must be added to the eligibility form before participating.) "

I agree that it would seem unlikely for a student to transfer in, have to learn the system, and play only for the remaining games this year.

Ahh, the early signing period. That week in the year that everyone wants to overreact to who has and hasn’t signed. Any word on if Henderson is going to sign his LOI this week?

I hope we hear about some more quality recruits getting on board the next three days.

I don't disagree at all. The only advantage I can see is that it gives a kid a big head start in getting college credits early on to ease the load later on, and getting acclimated to his new teammates and coaching staff. (I doubt if he would be allowed to practice with the team, but I do not know that for sure).

I agree. I'd be willing to bet we will see someone whom we have not heard of up to this point.
I think we all know by now Coach McCarty is not bashful about going for top recruits....most will say no...hopefully one will say YES.

I am still anxiously waiting on Dixon's decision.
