Please offer your thoughts, advice, and if you know if this is correct on the following.
My son a 4-2-4 qualifier guy is now at juco starting year 2 soph with 32 credits. He was medical hardship (redshirt) for year 1 at D1 college. We were concerned about being progress eligible at future D1/D2 if he plays 2 years at juco. He has been advised by the juco that he can play 2 years and still remain progress eligible at a future D1 by implementing the following strategy:
He will not trigger the progress rule of 60% (72 credits towards major) if he goes part time his last fall semester at juco by say taking 11 credits. (for juco eligibilty he has to have 24 credits by spring of year 3, 11 in fall and 13 from previous spring to total 24) They assert that going to D1 4 yr school he will not trigger the 60 % progress until after he finishes his 6th full time semester, which will be after his fall semester at the 4 yr D1 college. So, their plan is he will have 60 credits from juco AA degree, plus 6 credits of foreign language (which goes towards 4 yr major) from juco year 3, plus 12 credits from fall full time semester 6 at 4 year D1, for a total of 78 credits, 6 more than the min of 72 needed for progress. In other words, the progress of 60% 72 credits gets triggered after he finishes his 6th full time semester at the 4 yr D1 college. Therefore, after fall semester of his 4th year he will be eligible progress wise and get to play 2 seasons of college baseball. I know I may have been confusing however does this work for the D1 4 yr college?????
