I dont think I've ever seen a guy drop 12 points to what is still a respectable WE #. Normally, he drops to something under 20 every time for me.
Very often a player who was not notified of the redshirt during recruiting or a player who isn't a freshman will get pretty upset and have a significant work ethic drop like what you said you've seen Poncho. I would guess that is the most common response and I'm sure at one point or another we've all experienced that same thing. But there are other times where, although he claims he's ******, you run into a situation like Chapel's where the work ethic drop is relatively minor and is certainly worth keeping the redshirt on, even after factoring in the small drop.
Chapel, I've never had a player transfer in the situation you're describing and I tend to run into that scenario quite often. I think you're safe.
