That seems rather arbitrary.
Why would you exclude a guy who postponed college for a few years because of a military commitment? Or because of a family health emergency? Or because he accepted an offer to play pro baseball and washed out, but is still drawing interest as a football player?
What is wrong with a non-traditional student taking advantage of all the benefits a University can provide? That rule would have cost guys like Antowain Smith and Chris Weinke millions of dollars.
