I think that is a good thing.  Let him adjust to college life and the team.  Also give him time to get used to College life.

The bad thing is unless they sign some quality big men they will stink next year.

I don’t believe anyone thought that was even on the table to be honest. Why waste a year for a semester? He would be far behind the others. If Mike was dumb enough to waste him for a couple games then we really need to rethink our coaching.

Stink? We literally had our best run against A&M while Dan was on the bench, with a team full of guards coming back we can be scary good.

If he turns out to be the John Stockton as a frosh, I'm sure that Dr. Fitz  will pay for him to walk on this year and play.  Something tells me football is
on his mind.  I could be wrong and probably am though.

If he for sure redshirts this year, my guess would be he participates in Spring Football practice.  Unless that's some sort of scholly "no-no"....

How many times does this kid has to say I'm focusing on basketball and not playing football this Spring. Hill and his father have said this over and over.

Yep. That four minute span in one game completely translates to an entire season without any quality SEC big guys.

He can practice all he wants in football and stay on his bball scholly.

Once he enters a game, he automatically goes to a fball scholly.

Pretty sure he's said multiple times he's focusing on basketball this spring. Now they have left future options open.

He can be John Stockton next season. No need to lose 13+ games on a team that's most likely NIT bound.

I want 4 full years of Hill as our Point Guard. 2 years backing up Harris, 2 years running the show.

I saw a quote from him pretty recently that said that he might play spring football at Arkansas.

This is college basketball.  There's a decent chance one of them won't be on the team in one year and neither will be on the team in two years.  If Hill can make the team better this year and is fully on board with playing then you play him.  If he can't make the team better right now and needs some time then that works too.

Usually I agree with you. But with the situation of each player, I dont see either leaving the program early.

Yeah I think Hill is a 4 year player.  No clue on Harris though.  I'm guessing Hill wouldn't greatly improve the team right now but I'm just saying if he can then I'm all for it.  Gafford is gone after this year.  I don't want to hold anything back.

Harris is already 22 years old. The only way I see him leaving is as a grad transfer (because he gets passed over by a newcomer), or he just leaves to go play professionally overseas because being a 24 year old senior is not appealing to him.

I would be surprised if Hill was that much better than the guards we are already playing, coming straight from high school football. It he is good enough to make a big difference this year, I could see considering it. But he probably would not even be willing to play, trading a year of eligibility to play a few minutes per game for half the season, for what would be a senior season in which he would probably play heavy minutes for 30 plus games.

Good point about him playing football. That's puts him even further behind.

Here are all your answers. This was on Dec. 31. I don't think the door has slammed shut on him playing this year, yet. I think we will know very soon if they plan to suit him up or not. He seems like he would be very excited for the opportunity.

He has also officially been added to the roster according to the school’s website. Not that it means anything, but I still don’t think the door has slammed shut on the situation.

Are you positive about this? 
If you are correct, that means all 2 sport athletes (with one sport being football) HAVE to count against football?
That seems wrong (which means it likely IS the NCAA policy....)

Football is the money maker sport. As far as I know he is right. If it were not true all the biggest schools would have 15 extra football players playing basketball.
