    Watched him play over the past few years and very happy he chose the Tide. Fun player to watch, smart, and got a level head on his shoulder, and put in extra school work to graduate early.

    Traditionally speaking, there haven't been a lot of similarities between high school and college course work. Anyway, I was just curious, but I'm glad to have KL headed to T-town.

    I mostly agree with you but over the past 3-5 years more and more kids are graduating high school early and enrolling early to participate in spring football so it seems to be starting to happen in basketball too with more kids starting to reclassify. When I graduated high school (30 years ago) it was unheard of. Now kids have all kinds of options with online courses, summer school, dual college/high school enrollment, AP courses, etc. that it has become a lot more common. I question how kids can travel all over playing basketball/football/camps during the summer yet still take courses to graduate high school early. I also question how college athletes can spend so much time working out, practicing, etc and still graduate in 3 years. I have my opinions on this but I will keep those to myself.
