There will absolutely be more players who will attempt to do it, and more schools that will attempt to steal a highly sought after recruit, seeing it as worth the effort. And even if they don't win on appeal, it creates a whole lot of headaches and distractions in the off season when coaches expect to be done with recruiting for that class.

    The ailing grandmother thing is a pretty flimsy excuse. First and foremost, he made his decision to attend ND knowing full well that he'd be away from his family, including grandma. Moreover, it's a three hour flight from South Bend to California. He can video chat with any of his family, including grandma, with nothing more than a broadband connection. In an always connected world, being "away" from family doesn't mean the same thing these days as it did a decade or two ago.
    Basically sounds as if he did not want to take a foreign language class needed to get into ND

    Reports: UCLA DL Eddie Vanderdoes to miss remainder of season with ACL tear

    UCLA’s Pac-12 and national title hopes have reportedly suffered a major blow Sunday has standout defensive lineman Eddie Vanderdoes is done for the year with an ACL injury.

    The news was first reported by Edward Lewis of UCLA’s Rivals site, and then followed up with reports from UCLA’s Scout site and Fox Sports’s Bruce Feldman.

    Vanderdoes left Saturday’s game and later returned to action, eventually leading the club with eight tackles and two TFLs while also serving as a lead blocker on Myles Jack‘s one-yard touchdown run in the Bruins’ 34-16 win over Virginia.

    A junior out of Auburn, Calif., Vanderdoes earned Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 accolades in 2014 after collecting 50 tackles and 5.5 tackles for loss.
