This topic came up at lunch today and I was struck by the fact that I genuinely did not know the answer.
When a recruit enrolls early to a university, have they generally completed summer school work to make it so that they have enough credits to earn their high school diploma at the semester break, or is their an equivalence issue, or is there some NCAA loophole on this?
Similarly, has anyone looked at how the class of 2011, at least those players from the state of Michigan, will be affected by the new requirements of the Michigan Merit Curriculum? With the more stringent requirements for graduation, will we see less early enrollees from the state of Michigan in the future.
Any insight that can be provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
