    Was St Brown throwing up the Victory sign after a TD and wearing USC gloves last night?

    My cousin is a Frosh on MD's squad so I went to the game last night and all the talk in the stands was that JT is trying to reclassify, taking like 8 classes each semester to do so. All with the expectation that Darold will head to the NFL and JT wants to come in early and compete for the starting spot.

    This would be very nice, indeed. The guy is ready to go into Div.1 as much as any present senior.

    As a former Cali HS Principal I can tell you that most students have completed their graduation requirements by the end of 11th grade; taking Govt. & Economics during a summer sessions. Senior year is generally 1/2 day attendance t0 meet the state requirement and child labor laws. Students then are afternoon working retail or taking CC Classes. The chronological age of the student is a greater requisite for college contact sport athletics than grade level.

    Agree, and there are tons of alternative methods to gain necessary credits...like online classes, JC classes, summer school, etc.

    Not sure what SC's admission requirements are, but as long as he has decent SAT/ACT, shouldn't be a concern.

    Very cool. And who among us that follow recruiting was not concerned about ARST about we (frankly) got our arses handed to us at South Bend? So glad we've righted the ship and now ARST needs to fully become what I already believe he is.. a Trojan!

    This is interesting news. It would make sense, we've been awful quiet on the recruiting trail at the QB spot and there's no way we're comfortable with just Sears and Fink there next year.

    So what would happen next season if Darnold does come back? We'd have a bench of Sears/Fink and now JT...all waiting their turn ( not to mention a Jalen Greene taking an occasional rep).

    Such is life I suppose, especially at the QB position.

    That would be great

    It would give another year for all grew to develop and after Darnold leaves JT would have had a year to learn the playbook and system to really compete for the starting job

    I think it is the nature of that position at the major powers. You can only play one qb at a time and if you aren't the guy you are looking at waiting until you get to play. I think it is going to be really interesting to see what Darnold decides. I am sure that Fink, Sears and JT are all very interested, as well.

    Yes, that's the upside and great for the team...not so much for Fink, or whoever is the odd-man-out. But again, such is the nature of the position.

    One in a million, and hasn't been replicated since. That is not a selling point.

    Landscape has only become more competitive for Fr. to start, not less.

    If you try and peddle the Cassel angle, Fink/Sears will start their xfer paperwork immediately.

    Plus JT would have 4 years of eligibility remaining.

    Just a thought.... if J.T. is reclassifying, I wonder if he can come in as a blue shirt? No official visit but perhaps an in home visit may rule that possibility out....

    That's an interesting question.
