Per NCCA bylaws, if a player enters the transfer portal, the school can choose to not renew his scholarship, regardless of whether he actually transfers to another school.



Clemson is the only team I've seen do that. At least publicly.

Because he’s a 5 Star and wants to go to a relevant program.

That was the narrative from media, former players, and shite fans. Those “fans” are still going on about it.
Heck, I even made a couple of posts about his issues, mostly to defend him from what was being said about him.

Okay. Some of it was in this thread. But it doesn't matter who is speculating it....the point is it was speculated because of the way it was handled. Had LSU come out and said, "Gilbert is banged up and we want to give him some extra time to recover and get ready for next year." none of the bad speculation would have happened.
When I made my comment to you, I was not meaning to point a finger at you specifically.

quote:

It has been reported widely by multiple outlets. Also, Orgeron said it in an interview. I think he’s leaving all avenues open for Gilbert to return, which is smart.
You are misunderstanding me. I mean, are you sure it is normal for schools to pull scholarships when a player enters the portal? I've never heard of it happening....at east not until the player leaves, at which point, yes. The school would pull financial aid.

His high school QB is there.


Okay? When I was in High School, (many, many, many years ago) my QB went to Tennessee. (I played WR) There is no way in the world I would have gone to Tennessee to play with him, and we got along fine.

but still I say I hope he works on himself and gets better for sure.
I agree if he is having problems....but nobody seems to know definitively that he has any problems.

I understand that, but the poster i was responding to said that it was a common thing for a school to pull a players financial aid once he enters the portal. Have you heard of a school that has done that? I mean, once the kid transfers, obviously....but just because he has entered the portal?

Can it happen? Yes. But has it ever happened? Not that I am aware of.

ETA
I see Porter already answered that. It has happened once, that we know of. I am pretty sure I read somewhere that well over a thousand kids have entered the portal since it has been around.

Tennessee is more relevant than Missouri?

It probably happens more than is publicized, especially graduates or guys low on the depth chart when room is needed under the 85 limit.

I'm pretty sure the rule doesn't enable schools to cancel financial aid for the current academic term in which they enter the portal, but does allow them to cancel it for the next term.

And you might be right, but processing has been going on for a long time. And...I would think if it was happening a lot some players would be coming out and talking about it.

I mean, I guess there is no way for us to prove our point one way or the other.

Some of our insiders are feeling pretty good about him. We'll see, though.

I've heard he reached out to Bama, but I'm not sure yet if they'll have room.

Don’t want him. Not a position of need and he’s a locker room cancer.

Welp, I guess he'll have to transfer somewhere else then.

Goes back to the rumor and speculation that we were talking about earlier

Ah! Gotcha! I wish people would stop stating things as fact when what they are saying is based on a rumor.

Thanks for clarifying.

Farrell’s take: FICTION. I know it seems like it would make sense with Georgia's shot at the playoff next season and talk of the former five-star being homesick, but I still expect him to end up at Tennessee to play with his high school quarterback Harrison Bailey.

Remember that the Vols were the first program to recruit him as a receiver and he has a good relationship with the staff. Let’s be honest, Gilbert is a freak talent who will be off to the NFL in a couple of years no matter where he lands, so why not reunite with his old QB at a program that is close enough to home?

Gorney’s take: FICTION. I’m pretty confident he’s going to end up in the SEC and Georgia is definitely one of the programs going after him, but throughout his first recruitment, he seemed lukewarm about the Bulldogs and their use of tight ends. This season, no Georgia tight end had more than 10 catches. That is going to be a concern of Gilbert’s as I’m sure other coaching staffs have promised him the world. I wouldn’t count out Florida or Alabama for him, but Tennessee makes a lot of sense as well.
