    Re-Classification

    Tired of hearing about reclassification in college basketball. Don't hear it in football or baseball. If a kid has already been 'placed' in the 2016 class by a parent, he should have to graduate in 16 and begin his college career in 16. All of these kids moving 'up' to 15 has made college recruiting a mess.

    Duke had their 16 pg reclass to 15. UK is in discussions to do the same with Murray. Skal has moved between classes. No one know what class Thon Maker is really in.

    Just stop it!

    I don't understand how this far in the school year a kid can decide to reclassify to 2015.

    Yes, we should totally restrict school age kids because it makes it difficult for adults to follow recruiting for their favorite sports team.

    When you look at the college BBall scene, most kids are held back to get an advantage on the recruiting field. Once they obtain their "star" status they usually will reclassify because they can kick start their career NBA earnings a year earlier. In most cases kids reclassify into their natural age bracket.

    Agree, I would love to know. In the rankings they have him in the 2015 class.
