Yep. Ours got a 2090 on the SAT (during its sad written-component era) and got 18 percent academic

This is all in the mix when I talk about the built-in advantage Walton had over White in Oregon, and still has over any number of others from states that don't produce players

My older DD crushed all three components at St. Thomas Aquinas and that was not her case in Gainesville. Not much relief other than the few grand from Bright Futures.... and my Florida College Prepaid contract, though that has nothing to do with HS academic performance or testing

Were you able to direct your Florida Pre-Paid towards her education at her out of state school?

What I’ve heard is some schools don’t allow athletes to use academic money if on scholarship. I don’t know what schools do this.

The following is how the NCAA determines whether or not an academic merit scholarship would be countable during the student-athlete’s freshman year:

NCAA Bylaw 15.5.3.2.4.1 (Academic Honor Awards -- Based on High School Record): Academic honor awards that are part of an institution’s normal arrangements for academic scholarships, based solely on the recipient’s high school record and awarded independently of athletics interests and in amounts consistent with the pattern of all such awards made by institutions, are exempt from an institution’s equivalency computation, provided the recipient was ranked in the upper 10 percent of the high school graduating class or achieved a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.500 (based on a maximum of 4.000) or a minimum ACT sum score of 105 or a minimum SAT score of 1200 (critical reading and math) for SAT tests taken before March 1, 2016; or a minimum SAT score of 1270 (critical reading and math) for tests taken on or after March 1, 2016, based on the concordance determined by the College Board.

Yes, with full in-state benefit for the elder at UF

And the at-a-loss, exactly-the-money-I-paid-in rate for the one at Oregon

Many Georgia athletes can cover about 50% of college with the Hope scholarship, given to students with at least a 3.0 from high school. They must maintain the 3.0 through college for it to stay in effect. It allows in state scholarships for roughly 1/2.

And it gives UGA a tremendous advantage in stretching their Athletic Dollars.

Now that Coach Lombardi has accepted the HC position at Oregon, who's coming to OU? Gascoigne?

I really don't know who Patty will hire, but remember, Lombardi was a catcher.

Lots of candidates, given the ones who've played there and the grad assistants PG has had recently: Ricketts, Gascoigne, Stevens, Shults, Lindsey Vandever, Sara G ...

That's true. I know she was on Alomeda's staff with the Pride but I don't think Mike Stith retained her when he took over so I'm not sure what she is doing now.

It’s defiantly going to be a different look next year for OU.   The new pitching coach is going to have to deal with the loss of the two pitchers who threw 95% of all the innings last year.  An incoming freshman and a transfer who thought they were going to learn from Lombardi.   Not to mention the loss of the catcher who caught most of the innings last season.   Not the best of circumstances but a great job to land anyways, I guess.

Besides the fact that it's Oklahoma, it has got to be very attractive to an Assistant Coach knowing your coming into a situation where you can really make your mark from the get go for all the reasons you stated.
