according to ESPN. He's at a prep school right now (Fork Union). We recruited him last year but he never did make it up for a visit. With the Auburn coaching staff getting the boot, he is looking around again. Profile...
Another JUCO that we're in contact with. Very surprising stuff.
JUCO's a little different than a prep school, no?
But DO WANT. I certainly hope he's interested.

Not a JUCO. Fork Union is a prep school. Not the same thing. Chris Perry was a prep kid for example. It's basically an extra year of high school.

Can someone explain the difference to me and how it's easier for a prep school kid to come here than a JUCO? I know nothing about that
It's basically just another year of HS. Mitch McGary did it for Bball last year.
And Fork Union is a pretty solid prep school, so academics *shouldn't* be an issue.
I expect him to be an A&M commit relatively soon.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
NCAA treats them as basically high schoolers...basically, it is like a prepatory year, so the kid won't fail out of college.
Would he still get for years of college or does it work like JUCO transfer? I am asking because I have no idea how that works. Please enlighten me.
still get 4 years. It's like a victory lap for high schoolers. Kids usually only spend one year at a prep school to get their grades up for college. It can be confusing because at prep schools their is a one year plan and a 4 year plan. Kids can go to school their for all four years of high school and its like any other high school but just with a lot stricter rules. They will compete for state championships like other high schools. There is also a plan for a kid who went to a different high school graduated after 4 years but didn't have good enough grades for college or didn't get cleared by the clearing house. They go their for a year and play other prep schools and colleges. For example while i was playing at Ohio University one of my teammates went to high school in Brooklyn but then went to fork Union military academy to get his grades up. He told be they played Kentucky but it was like their JV team essentially.
Hope this helps!
It’s like another year of HS so it doesn’t count against his eligibility. So he still has 4 years to play plus a RS.
A friend of mine went to Hargrave to get his grade’s up, and so he could get some bigger offers because he was only getting recruited by MAC team’s at the time and he wanted a BCS offer.
Thanks guys. I appreciate it.
