Re: NCAA rules - explanations

So next year's 2011 seniors can only wait one semester before starting college... must start by January 2012 or not play any competiton anywhere after Dec 31 until they start school the following year; penalty then becomes sit year in school and lose a year of eligiblity. This effects US kids or int'l kids trying to pro tour OR trying to wait for a better offer the following year (like Brynn Boren waiting one year before starting at Tennessee next year OR Danielle Lao who 'had' planned to wait for a spot a year later until USC booted Niculescu and they freed up a spot this year). So it's not just going to impact int'l recruits. It will likely take a few years before the int'l kids figure this new time frame out."

Is this likely to make next year's recruiting class crowded with talent, as the 19 year old, 20 year old, and (gasp.) 21 year old Freshman all try to get in on the last dance.
