Imo a grade risk is a grade risk.
Yeah but it is different coming from HS versus JUCO. There aren't many HS classes that LSU won't accept. Graduating HS is graduating HS.
Also, if a player doesn't qualify out of HS, you can always send him to JUCO or a prep academy like Hargrave, and then sign him again in six months.
Different story for JUCO. First of all, if JUCO's can't get it done in the classroom, they are more or less finished. There is not another JUCO to send them to.
Secondly, if we want the JUCO guys there in the Spring, and they didn't take the right classes to make that happen, we're SOL and so are they. Josh McNeil sounds Phil Loadholt all over again.
