In other NCAA news, prep school rules have been tightened to limit high school athletes to four years to get their core work done. This hurts BC as well. Over the past 20 years we've been accepting prep athletes in basketball, football and hockey. For the most part these guys have contributed and graduated through our programs. Now many of these football and basketball players will head to Junior Colleges. We are much less likely to bring in a kid from Junior College (for a variety of reasons) than from a New England or Virginia prep boarding school. I don't know the hockey scene well enough to know where their prep candidates will head instead of a fifth year of high school.
Finally in response to my questions raised about ACC Now pulling their Glasper quotes, Joe Giglio of ACC Now had this to say:
"In the interest of fairness and journalistic integrity, comments made by former Boston College football player Ryan Glasper were removed from ACC Now in order to compile a more complete collection of the facts. We hope to have a new report as soon as possible."
I look forward to their report.
