Subject: Anybody understand this

The following was a release on the Binghamtom Offical site.

" Binghamton men's basketball coach Kevin Broadus has secured a talented big man to complete his recruiting class for the 2008-09 season. Six-foot-9, 240-pound freshman Kyrie (pronounced KIGH-ree) Sutton (Brooklyn, N.Y./Boys & Girls HS) signed a financial aid agreement and will join the Bearcats in the fall."

If a scholarship is being given, what does a financial aid agreement mean. Might actually mean he didn't qualify by NCAA. Will be interesting to see if is eligible come the season.

All players receiving athletic scholarships sign a financial aid agreement with the school, even if they have also signed an NLI (the NLI does not include the financial terms of the scholarship, since the majority of athletic scholarships outside of basketball are not "full" scholarships).

Once the late NLI signing period ends, anyone who commits to a school would sign only a financial aid agreement with the school, in effect formalizing the commitment.

Up until that point, the verbal commitment is not binding either on the athlete or on the school.

On top of that, Binghamton was not free, under NCAA rules, to publicize the commitment in any way until there was a signed financial aid agreement.

So, any time you hear of a Division I school adding a "signee" after the end of the late NLI period, it means he signed only a financial aid agreement.

There were more than a few players at SPC who fell into that category when I was there (of course, we couldn't announce it, anyway).
