I know it was generally accepted as being an admissions issue, but I never bought into that.
I think you are getting the story mixed with Javon Ringer and Ray Williams. Ringer was the one with the academic issues, Sutton was just a size issue, they were also boxed in on schollies that year, and couldn't take any more smaller running backs. They offered Ringer a grey shirt. Ray Williams was the kid with the SERIOUS legal issues.
