Happy Birthday, Captain America!

I don't know if you are actually asking about how your son could graduate early or just questioning how these athletes do it, but if it is the latter...

They go to prep schools in different states where they get to focus on basketball and basically get whatever they need "academically". I'd guess that most of them leave a lot to be desired with SAT and ACT scores. Just because someone gets credit for a class, doesn't mean they are any better off or learned anything from it.

BTW, I'm not being an old man complaining, because I could care less, since I know college basketball is now a job, not about an education.
That would be me.

That list just shows how impressive BU has been. We’ve had 2 fringe first round type guys in the past 5 years, he’s gotten us the most big ten wins, 3 big ten championships (should be 4), an elite 8 and a number 1 seed. He’s been able to roster construct and coach up the Trent’s, d’montes, Feliz, grandersons, Giorgi B, etc.

Assuming he is landing the right attitude guys, imagine what he can do with this next level of talent.
That is key.

I wouldn’t say it’s done deal that’s he’s reclassifying … But it’s on the table …

There’s always a reason a kid slams in 3 visits in a weeks time right before Peach Jam …

And there’s also a reason Brad went back to the big boy donors and said be ready for my call …

And I’ll tell y'all right now … If Brad goes to those guys and says I can get Jasper … Here’s the amount … For this year … As long as it’s the number I’ve been told … They’ll do it …

Boosters got that Elite 8 taste last year and they want an f’ing natty …

So we will take Jasper in 24 as a Reclass but not fears in 24 as a Reclass?

I'm not going to pretend to know everything that's being thought but they obviously just think Jasper is better than Fears. Which every recruiting service in the country would agree with.

Also, it seems like they would have taken fears if he redshirted but didn't think he would be able to play a role as a 17 year old freshman. They obviously must think Jasper is more capable of making an immediate impact.

Which just my observation but Jasper looks much more physically ready than Fears to play at the college level and he's a bit taller. DGL looks small on the court and he's seems significantly bulkier than Fears is.

It was not even a little close at the FIBA U18 tournament. Jasper was head and shoulders better with a much more mature game than Fears, on both ends of the court.

And that's saying a lot because Fears is a very good player.
