I get that, but that's not the point. Sopsher is not some rare talent like Leonard Fournette. he's not worth losing a spot for his brother

Qualifying is never a problem for Bama,everyone is aware of that


There isn't team sans Vandy that wouldn't take this kid's commitment. So STFU.

Any LSU that thinks they can not get a kid qualified is one of two things. 1) a troll trying to get you to bite or 2) a idiot that truly believes that LSU is a prestigious institution of higher learning

As mentioned with the exception of Vandy, who I hear now does have a few exceptions for entrance, every SEC school has many football players if not for their ability and the great NCAA sliding scale would never qualify as a just a student.

One thing that we do know is Bama has some special qualifying power. Exhibit Eddy Lacy.

Didn't he make up like 2 years of credits in one summer? I know it was impossible for him to make it up in time and he did anyway.

You just ignore them. I just told you Bama had a big time player not qualify this year. You have to go back 10 years in reference to a player you know little about, probably nothing except from the mouth of bitter LSU fans. 10 years ago and y'all are still whimpering.

ETA: Per a very reliable LA-based insider, Ish Sopsher's grades will not be an issue. He was spot-on with Surtain's recruitment last winter and has maintained since February that Ish will be wearing Crimson. Hank also said he hasn't heard of grades being a concern. It's probably a rumor originating from LSU fans.

The grades rumor was directly from Bama's own 247 site by a Bama poster...

re: 2019 4-star DT Ishmael Sopsher - Amite, LA - Recruiting Thread
Eddie was a very, very, very long shot to qualify. I don't think many people on the internet know the specifics other than that.

It was assumed by basically every program, besides Alabama, that he would be a grade casualty. Alabama somehow got him qualified. That just made people question how they pulled it off when it was considered a near impossibility.

That isn't an indictment of the standards of the Alabama education system compared to LSU's. We all know football player grade requirements are a whole different ball game than your average student for every school, even Vandy.

Exactly,it’s the fact that they pulled it off when he obviously shouldn’t have made it
