It could be. However this particular recruit, Jeremy Smith, will be on an official visit which means he has cleared at least the preliminary admissions hurdles.

 

I always believed that the rule was just an absolute prohibition on taking JUCO transfers regardless of their transcript.

sounds like a different type of juco...

 

Southeastern Louisiana's loss was Fresno City College's gain as Smith's father, Craig Williams, found the school on his home computer and researched the Rams before he picked the school over other JCs in Mississippi and Arizona.

 

"I stumbled on coach Tony (Caviglia) and Fresno City," Williams said. "I looked at the great things they're doing over there ... having kids graduate and moving on to other schools and to advance in their career.

 

"What impressed me with coach Tony is the high percentage of guys that graduate. That's what impressed me the most. When I talked to him ... his character and being honest. ... It's a better fit for my son."

 

Smith is majoring in engineering and carries a GPA of at least 3.0 or better since high school.

Great, another talented back who will be underutilized...

 

Haha so true. Looking at our passing / rushing stats on the year (and eliminating QB/WR rushes) we have 437 passes (62%) to 273 runs (38%). With a 5 star and 4 star stud recruits in the backfield. And the only game we've had to play catchup on is USC this year.

Dardo.............some kids cant afford the 4 yr cost of College, so going the juco route can save them a lot of money.

 

Oh I wasn't putting down Junior Colleges at all, for the average person it makes a lot of sense. The kids that Alabama and the SEC are getting from JUCOs aren't going in order to save money, they are going because they didn't qualify for division 1 football academically, or they have gotten in some trouble. They go to a junior college for a year or 2, get the grades they need to get into a division 1 school, then get their full ride.

where did you get these stats? cfbstats has us a lot higher (but, still in the bottom 40 nationally).
