What if he doesn't clear? I have a guy I was looking to redshirt anyways and he scored a 560 on his SAT's (I guess he barely spelled his name right). Does he sit fora season and than can play the next year?
Ineligibles can play immediately for D3
schools as long as their GPA remains 2.0 or above during the season (like any other recruit). For D2
schools they sit out their first year if they don't clear, but still have 4 years of eligibility after they sit out that first season. For D1
schools, they will only get that last 4th year if they maintain a 2.7 or higher cumulative GPA at the end of the 3rd year that they played.
So if you're recruiting him for your D3 school, he'll show up on campus and you can treat him like any other normal recruit.
