I get what you are saying but LSU has had many football players who are questionable students. If this kid is RN or a stud recruit this is not happening to him. That's the nature of college recruiting. It's not always about fairness.
If LSU wasn't playing by the academic rules, they would've found ways to get D'haquille Williams and Deandre Brown into the program. Their unwillingness to bend on academics is the reason why the staff sat on Eddie Lacy and Darrington Sentimore which allowed them to slip to Bama.
