I do not believe that is correct. Booty signed with LSU in Feb. and was drafted by the Marlins in May. He never enrolled at LSU and went straight to the Marlins organization. Plus, he had another year of eligibility left at LSU in 2000, but saw that he would have been competing with Rohan for PT after the Peach Bowl, so he got out while his stock was fairly high (won SEC Offensive POY).
Booty went into pro baseball, then later tried to get out of his Marlins contract. In an effort to do so, he enrolled at LSU, then withdrew from school when the Marlins wouldn't let him out. His eligibility clock started then. He was eventually let out of his agreement with the Marlins and enrolled at LSU again, but he did lose a year of eligibility in the meantime.
I'm not imagining that, am I?
