If we're talking about this a year or two from now and it's a kid who has one of the four-year-commitment scholarships, I'm probably going to have a different opinion about who needs to justify what.
That's a good point. On a bit of a tangent, now that more and more schools are offering 4 year scholarships, if a kid wants to transfer or go pro early, if he is on a 4 year scholarship, is he in breach of contract? Could the school demand compensation from him?
