    Recruiting Violations

    SDID: I don't know where this belongs so I started a new topic.

    A possible recruiting violation that I just came across and would like to self report. I have a MLB (5*, #4 rank) on my board who is 214 lb (1lb less than the min weight). I have offered him a scholarship, and am competing with Ohio State who are #1 on his list. His visit was week 7. I am close to landing a 4 star MLB this week, but I want to know what I should do if this kid also commits when we advance. FYI, MLB is an immediate need for me. If both commit, will I be allowed to move this guy to OLB where he would be of permissible weight? I really don't want to lose my schollies because of 1lb. Damn, can't the guy eat a pizza, drink some beer and take a day off from the treadmill?

    Go for him. He will add weight. I took that limitation as you could not switch another player to that postion that is way under weight and super fast.

    Damn I didn't see the rule regarding player weight/position. Makes sense I just didn't see it, could you point me to it Buck? I'll need to check my commits when I get home.

    Thanks! That makes sense - I was going to ask how we were supposed to figure out a recruit's speed to meet the requirements, but since we're talking about position changes it's a non-issue. Now I have to go recruit against my buckeyes to bring this kid to lincoln.
