Can he qualify, or is he like his brothers?
Everything I've read about him is that qualification is in serious doubt.
You have 3 sons that can play D1 and you cant get one Q'd, just sad.
You would think he would have learned to hit the books after seeing what has happened with his brothers....
You'd think they wouldv'e learned something after the first or second miss. Or that the kids themselves would've

Brenhams next star Darrion Johnson Class of 2014
Just a thought. Should high school qualification standards be reevaluated? You see so many guys playing high school ball who are dumber than dirt and will never qualify except for JUCO. If the high schools allow them to play, what does that tell the young man about getting work done in the classroom? I'm not saying every athlete should be required to meet college entrance requirements while in high school, but maybe they should consider a higher standard for high school athletes. (Please note, I have no idea what the standards to qualify to play in high school are...)
This is no different than me naming my top 3.
You have to make a 70 or higher in all of your classes for the six weeks last I checked.
Maybe posting's just not your game. I know, let's have a spelling contest.
Isn't that a D? An F is something like a 67 or so, right? Maybe athletes should be required to make no lower than a C in order to participate. Just a thought. If they have to have a 70 average then the system is certainly doing them no favors at all.
There are no D's in most high schools. 70-79 = C, 80-89 = B, 90-100 = A
You have to pass (ie get C's) in every class.
The problem is schools that will pass the kids along just so that they can stay eligible. It happens at every 5A school (and plenty in the lower divisions too).
No D's? Dang, things have changed since I was in high school. And I graduated in 2000. Well, whatever is being done, it's of little benefit to some of these athletes and seems like something needs to change.
