From the March 3, 2006 “The Sporting News”
Player to watch this fall: Ohio State LB Larry Grant. A junior college star at City College of San Francisco, Grant originally committed to Florida last fall but didn’t meet SEC academic requirements. He signed with Ohio State and likely will start spring practice at middle linebacker. Four years ago, Florida went through a similar situation with junior college LB Lance Mitchell, who eventually signed with Oklahoma and became an All-American.
Are the SEC’s standards really all that? Just another excuse to cheat, I suppose.
