Another excuse????? sorry, but you dont offer grey shirts to players to yank them later, unless the player truly cannot qualify on grades, This is a lot of smoke thrown up for something thats fairly simple, he has a class he has tried to pass several times, here is the link to the story in the advocate, who seems to have talked to his coach.

Here is the part where he talks about the gradesThe reason for LSU’s sudden hesitancy to take Lawson is the school’s concern over a summer class he took at Denham, Nettles said. Nettles said Lawson made a “D” in the class in question last year, made a “B” over the summer and is now taking the class for a third time.
“I’m 95 percent certain he will be eligible,” Nettles said, “almost 100 percent. There’s no reason to think it’s not (going to count). But they (LSU) thought it might. That’s on them. They know which classes we have him in.”
now i did go to LSU so forgive me if my percentages arent right, but 95 percent sure is not 100 percent. I am 100 percent sure if he signs on feb 6 and then doesnt qualify LSU loses that slot. Again, tell me why a grey shirt is such a bad thing given the circumstances.
