I have a question. My DD plans on playing college ball somewhere (hasn't made choice yet). Her high school offers dual credit courses (they count as both high school and college credit).
She has a question about this. If she takes the courses available when she graduates from high school she will be considered a sophmore in college. How will ths affect her getting a scholarship, coming on a team as a sophmore, and how many years will she be eligible to play? Thanks __________________ 2010 wormsmom

She will still be a freshman on the field and if she has enough hours to qualify her as a sophomore then she will be a sophomore in the classroom. If she doesn't have enough hours then she will still be considered a freshmen. I do believe!

Yes, that is correct. In NCAA ball, you still have to stay academically eligible to play but you have 4 years of eligibility. Some players receive their undergraduate degrees while playing. My DD's freshman roommate graduated with my DD after 5 years. My DD played the first 4 years and was assistant coach her 5th year, graduated with a bachelors. Amie reshirted her first year, played the next 4 and graduated with a master's degree.
