Grey shirting is still a scholarship promise for next year's class. It just
means he's not on the team this fall. Strange. I would easily sit out a
year if it meant playing for ASU vs. being with Nevada this fall. The pride of
these high school players is funny.
So Arizona State,A player that is good enough for your team as a
Sophomore and Junior all of the sudden isn't good enough when he has a
freak accident injury as a Senior? Sometimes I feel like recruiting is the
biggest sham of them all.
@intheboothHow good is that "scholarship promise"?
It's not binding. When a recruiter hasn't shown made good on his
promise for a scholarship why would you trust him for the following year.
I know a lot of Greyshirts that are not honored their scholarships and end up
playing somewhere else. Rush made a great decision for himself.
Greyshirt means you are paying your own way for a year and technically without
any promise of a scholarship. The financial burden of that situation is a lot of
most families to handle. At Nevada he gets tuition, room, board, stipend, fees.
Plus, he knows they really want him. There is a lot to be said for being a
bigger fish in a smaller pond.
KoRush traded a greyshirt for a blue jersey. Anyone with any good sense would
have done the same. Big Boy move son!! We are all proud and stand behind you all
the way!! Good luck at the next level!!
@UU32 - his father is a minor league baseball manager I don't think
financial strain has anything to do with it. But congrats to him hopefully
he'll get to play with Nevada. delayed gratification is not something this
generation knows much about though.
UU32,That whole big fish little pond this is hilarious.
Shouldn't every "fish" want to be the biggest they can be, and not
simply bigger than the other fish in his immediate area? A
"small fish in a big pond" is still bigger than a "big fish in a
small pond" Did you see what WAC champion Frenso State did against the #5
Pac 12 team in their bowl game? The biggest fish in a small WAC pond got
humiliated. Again, shouldn't every fish want to be as big as
possible? By saying that a small fish in a big bond is worse than being a big
fish in a small pond would be saying that the biggest fish in the WAC
pond(Fresno) was a better scenario than being Alabama this year, because they
weren't the biggest fish this year in the SEC pond, finishing behind
