  1. Again, it won’t be many athletes that do this but there will be some! We may be surprised that a few of these athletes that take advantage of this will be kids that were huge contributors to their team last season. According to the official document, it shouldn’t be too much longer until general public/fans learn if any kids will be 5th year seniors. I’m sure if any kids decide to stay (if their school board approves) that we will start seeing threads in this forum mentioning the names of players/schools. The “off-season” thread of Bluegrass Preps may be a bit more active with posts this summer!
  2. Thanks for all the responses. Again, I do not think it is PROBABLE but it is POSSIBLE that some kids will stick around. Not many but a few. I am thinking about 1 athlete in particular. Stud on the baseball diamond. Was getting several decent looks from some strong mid-major schools. March of 2020 rolls around, school dismisses and this kid (along with hundreds of other) misses his junior season of baseball. He panics and signs with a JUCO. Granted he has this upcoming season to play but ….. If he plays lights out this year and has an extra season next year, if he so chooses, he would probably have many more opportunities from some high-octane schools. I know it is unlikely, but the decision that has been made by the state will be very interesting to watch unfold with a handful of athletes throughout the Bluegrass in the next 90 days.
  3. Is it official in state of Kentucky for current seniors to have “the option” to repeat their senior school year this upcoming Fall? If so, is it correct that athletes can have extra year of playing eligibility in their sport as long as they do not turn 19 years old by a certain date? If all of this is true, do you feel that any current seniors would take advantage of this? My take - Although it is unlikely, some may choose to do this. With NCAA basically having same rule, recruiting has slowed down for this upcoming season for many athletes. I would think some kids that would like to play at next level that hasn’t been heavily recruited would, at least, consider this possibility. Thoughts??
