First, I hope he gets his grades straight. That's most important.

But isn't this almost the worst thing that can happen when you use a freshman's scholarship with no real benefit to the team? We've used one year of eligibility and now he's barely practicing...


Thats one way to look at it.

Another is if you think a guy might be at-risk academically (and Im speaking in general here, not to this specific case), there might be some incentive to get him on the field as quickly as possible. If a player is going to be touch-and-go just to get on the field for four seasons, its arguably worth it to get what you can when you can get it.

One other thing about Porzel --- if theres a guy who can afford minimal practice, it might be him. Speed rather than scheme is going to be the key to his production, in all probability. I suspect he needs to keep himself in shape, regardless of whether hes practicing or not.
