    three part question

    1-can a recruit sign an LOI, attend classes, practice with the team before season start and then move to transfer portal?
    2-if so would he have to sit out a season if he moved to another school (through the portal) and attend class and practice then?
    3-in these cases the signed LOI is not of much power other than other schools cannot recruit him (wink)?

    Didn't Bru sign LOI with USC and attend classes before he went to Texas?

    Are you telling us there may be a player who is currently in another program, that may be trying to leave there, and come to us???

    This is my guess here.
    Obviously you can't say something like that until the official word has been reported, but I would like to know, and I am hoping it is the prospect that I have in mind because if it is...

    Not going to even guess, even though each and every one of us had the exact same thought. No freakin way do I want to get anywhere near close to jinx'ing it.

    I think you should read what our friend above me just said.
    If you are referring to Julian Fleming then yes my USC friend, you are correct.
    There is no other prospect by that letter name that you spoke of that we would be referring to on this site.

    NO!
    I am trying to get a handle on how this works. The portal upset everything. I still do not understand it.

    The serious answer to your OP is yes.

    The transfer portal is like entering your name in the NBA draft, but not signing an agent.
    You get to throw your name in the pool, see who is interested in you, and have the option of withdrawing and staying, or committing to another school.
    Now what is simply political is the transfer waiver and how most get it waived and are eligible immediately, and some do not.
    That is what I can never understand about the entire transfer process...

    And why I think it makes sense to have that one-time free transfer rule, where the NCAA doesn’t get to pick and choose who gets immediate eligibility and who doesn’t based on what seems to be absolutely nothing.

    If I am being transparent, I believe the waiver has more to do with the big name and/or the big program.
    If you notice, the players that have the juice/buzz/hype/status normally always get the waiver approved immediately (see Justin Fields).
    The NCAA is more about moving the bottom line than it is being fair and honest if you ask me.

    I do agree that one-time transfer will help, but I do believe we will LOTS of freshmen/JUCO transfers using this as a quick escape from their previous school because the situation is not what they thought it was.
    It is going to be worse for men's basketball, but this is not the forum for that discussion...

    Ok... beginning to follow now.
    So I take for example Forman who de committed from Clemson. A southern California kid who probably always liked USC but was persuade quite legally and above board that USC was going in the tank and who wants to play for a loser. So they won and he signed his LOI with Clemson. He "did" sign the LOI, right?
    Now the novel gets interesting becasue of the portal. USC cannot urge him to go into the portal. They cannot even talk to him. But tweeter and facebook and other media can. So can his California buddies. They begin to sell him on the great classes USC is recruiting and the great coaching (without Hleton's name spoken) and he begins thinking he made a mistake so he jumps into the portal but doesn't want's to make it obvious he wants to go to USC. The NCAA gets really nervous about things and begins an investigation.
    If the guy is a major recruit (he is) and if he is jumping to a suspect new school (he might) then is that where we are now?

    He hasn’t signed his LOI, he still has his senior season before he signing.

    Basically everything you said...the biggest issue in your scenario that the NCAA would not be able to physically prove that this happened.
    I will point out that Foreman is a 2021 prospect and is about to enter his senior year of HS this fall.
    If he were a 2020 prospect, all of w hat you said would be realistic though...

    This is part of the reason why I do not like the "sick/ailing relative" line that is used when some prospects transfer closer to home.
    We all have a relative that fits this description if we are willing to go far enough down the family tree, but the NCAA is not going to be able to search and prove this so...it normally gets waived and the prospect is eligible immediately.
