Can someone give me the cliff notes version of how a kid is able to re-classify into an earlier signing? How is a kid able to have enough HS credits to academically qualify an entire year earlier?

difficult, but not impossible, particularly with summer classes.

Slightly off topic, but I have a pal up here in Hilliard whose daughter will enter Ohio next fall. By taking college level classes the last two years, she will arrive in Athens, he tells me, just short of a freshman year's worth of credits already in her pocket. Think of how much money the family is saving if she only needs 3 years on campus rather than 4! This is one reason sited for the enrollment drop at OU...kids they counted on being there this fall as seniors graduated early.

It could be any one of several kids every year that do this.

I have a friend and co-worker whose daughter is an OU senior and will only have three years on campus for that very reason. Great for her and anyone who can make it happen.

I think what your talking about here is scholarships and how a team can sign more then the max players by reclassifying kids into earlier classes. I really think this is something that has mainly popped up since the transfer rule.

i think this is really something that happens more in football. But lets say. you signed 20 kids in 2019 class and that put you at max 85 scholarships. but over summer or in fall. you have 3 or 4 kids transfer out not really using there scholarship.

then you have kids out of your 2020 class come in for the January semester. once they are enrolled you issue them one of those open scholarships basically back dating them into the previous class.
