  • #2 by navyhog24 on 02 May 2017
  • Not surprised at all. You can't blame a kid for wanting to play and getting a full ride vs riding the pine and having to pay his own way. Good luck RJ!

  • Who?
    RJ Glasper, our prized walk-on who got injured before the season.

    Wow. Arkansas Tech just got a steal, go down there get your school paid for and ball out and go D1!

    He'd have to sit out another year, unless he becomes a grad transfer.
  • #11 by Rock City Razorback on 02 May 2017
  • He'd have to sit out another year, unless he becomes a grad transfer.

    But would be able to apply for a medical redshirt year, then regular redshirt year sitting out transferring. I'm betting he's just fine with going to Tech and getting school paid for though.

    ATU is a D2 school and he wouldn't need to sit out.

    Yes he would. They are part of the NCAA. If you transfer within NCAA you still have to sit. You do not have to sit from JUCO to D1 because they are not part of the NCAA.

  • He'd have to sit out another year, unless he becomes a grad transfer.

    Tech is D2. So he can play immediately per the current rules (which only exempts D1 teams from using the one-time transfer exception.) Probably the reason he's going to D2 is so he doesn't have to sit out another year.

    Most likely he will come back to D1 as a grad transfer. He's at 60 hours now so he'll have 2 years of eligibility when it's time to graduate. Even if he didn't, after this redshirt year, he would still have a year left to play. Hopefully, he comes back to the Hogs but either way, Good luck to the kid.

    He took 30 hours each semester?

    If he went from Tech back to a D1 school he would have to sit out, correct? That is what Rice was saying.

    He can play D2 immediately. He cannot go to ATU, then back to D1, and play immediately at the D1 school.

  • He can play D2 immediately. He cannot go to ATU, then back to D1, and play immediately at the D1 school.

    As a grad transfer, he can. It's called a graduate transfer waiver. As long as he goes and enters a program that is not offered by ATU (like an MBA,) he can transfer and play without sitting out. More paperwork than if he never transferred yes, but still would be able to play immediately.

    Took hours in HS and transferred them. Trey was similar which is why he graduated in 3 years not 4

    Ok, mine brought in 23-27 hours of AP, I guess he probably went to summer school last summer, too.

    I believe so but would have to ask his dad or uncle to be sure how he got all his credits. Not that it's that big of a deal really. Either way, he'll have time on his clock when he graduates.

    Sure, it's a big deal, two years is twice as much as one!

    Touche . . . . In regards to time playing D1 ball, yeah, 2 years is an eternity  ;D ;D Honestly, him graduating early will probably make him that much more valuable to a lot of  coaches when/if he decides to come back as a grad transfer and judging by the statement, it doesn't seem like he's burning bridges in Fayetteville either so could get him back in a few years with more game experience than he would see riding the pine.

    He never played a minute as a Razorback, those two guys averaged double digits and led us to a NCAA Tournament. Not taking anything away from RJ, but come on.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be AP. A lot of high school kids are taking dual credit hours, either online or a local junior college or 4-year. Go to JUCO in the morning, go to high school in the afternoon. Retain HS eligibility.

    As I said a few weeks ago, you guys only care about Hog players if you think their play will result in wins. Which I have no issue with if you'll just be honest and admit such.

    What are you talking about? My post was in reponse to your post about angst not and something you posted weeks ago.

    I have no angst as he is going to get a free education which he wouldn't have here. Probably more playing time as well. Which is great.

    Not that it matters to you but I have not angst toward Macon or Barford if they choose to leave. As a fan I will be extremely disappointed as it means less success next year. Unlike you who will be thrilled if they leave.

    I don't care if they leave or not, it is their life. By angst I mean all the people checking projected drafts, European contracts, etc. Those saying those two will be making a huge mistake if they leave, yet basically clapping that this young man is leaving. Talking about what a big deal it would be for Macon and Barford to come back, and get the full experience and benefits of finishing their careers as Hogs. Apparently no one wants that for Glasper.

    Apples to oranges comparison. Barford/Macon are contemplating getting a degree/ final season college experience, or making one seasons salary in the D League/overseas.  Glasper was contemplating playing time, D1 vs D2,  and paying for school or not.

    Because it's more evident that Macon isn't going to be drafted, so most feel that him coming back gives him another year to change that by becoming a more nationally relevant player, etc. etc. Glasper started as a walk-on and is paying out of pocket. How many guys do you see go from walk-on to professionally player? t's disappointing to lose him because we never got to see what he was capable of and the Hogs have had some success with walk-ons, but it's understandable due to finances. You're making this something that it's not.
  • #49 by hogsanity on 03 May 2017

    It is exactly what I said it is. The only time people care about a player leaving is if they think that player means more wins for the team if he stays. No one cared when Wagner, Jenkins, Babb or even Whitt left because they did not see those guys translating into more wins for the team if they stayed. But people were willing to offer up their 1st born to try to get Portis, Qualls, and now Barford and Macon to stay because the team is undoubtedly better with those players than without.

    I'll say it, I hope both Barford and Macon come back because it means more wins, period. I have no idea if coming back will translate into a better pro career, if they will get their degrees, etc.

    You're full of sh-- if you truly believe people weren't upset when we lost Whitt or Babb. But I do think you're right, however, I also think a lot of it has to do with what situation the player transferring out is stepping into. When a walk-on transfers to a small school that has offered him a scholarship, people are not unhappy because it has no real effect on wins, yes, but also because they're happy for the player to find a better situation for himself. I truly believe most Hog fans that this news reaches will be happy for R.J. to get a scholarship somewhere. People did not feel Qualls was stepping into a better situation. Of course they wanted him back because the team would be better, but they also hated seeing a kid plunge into the unknown when he could have come back and improved his standing. They viewed returning as the better situation, and not just from the standpoint of it helping the team. Same with Barford and Macon right now.

    Most fans understood why Portis went pro and supported it. Of course we'd all have loved to have him back, but most fans anticipated him leaving early all season. There was no big uproar when he went pro. Fans wanted him to either be drafted has high as possible or go to a great situation. The fans that bemoaned him going pro were few and far between, and ignorant.
