:confused: Nearly 90 college basketball players have "transferred" out of a program without joining another. Some of these may lack the skills or maturity to play at this level. Others may have academic difficulties. Can a student satisfy his required "sit out" year by attending a college or JC without playing any sport, or attending no college, then be immediately eligible anywhere? (Assuming he can afford it?) If not, can a waiver be obtained for the 4 years eligibility within 5 years? Or are these kids' careers effectively ended by NCAA rule if they don't commit for this season? Getting pretty late for that. Will never understand the NCAA bureaucracy!

Yes, Kevin Young of LMU did this before playing at Kansas University.
