    What is the cut-off date, or is there one for recruiting additional players?

    THE REAL Cut-Off Date is The Current (Upcoming) Semester…

    Getting Into and Keeping Up with Potentially Missed Classes IS The Hardest Physical/Mental Task, especially for “New” Recruits …[Extreme Example: Even Isaac Fotu ‘COULD Have’ attended / made up missed classes until NCAA Waiver submitted and approved]; that said, NOT a Smart Play to ADD Additional Stressors to an Already Hard Start-Up, esp. for New Arrivals…So Much better IF That “Last Scholarship” Goes (Timely) to A Player Early Enough to Attend “Bridge Summer Session”, Acclimate and WORK HARD and ease/ Transition into ‘The System’…
