Franklin Porter transfer

Post by dholcombe on Fri Jun 03, 2016 12:44 pm

So there was an earlier rumor that Randy Bennett indicated Franklin is going to transfer. Has anyone heard anything more concrete. Have there been any additional rumors about if he will be able to get the 2nd year of sitting out for an intra-WCC transfer waived. Is there even an official process for applying for such a waiver? I don't have anything, but I thought this topic deserves a thread separate from his dads as I expect there will be a lot of speculation as things go through the process.

There is no second year.

Here is the rule ( from the BYU website )


"In the sport of menís and womenís basketball only, a student-athlete who previously enrolled at a Conference institution and transfers directly or indirectly to another Conference institution shall fulfill a one-year residency requirement upon enrollment and shall be charged with the loss of one of the four permissible seasons of competition.
"

The one year residency requirement is an NCAA rule, and has been waived for sons of coaches before.

Here's what I know:

Franklin will walk-on at UP and will redshirt this coming season per NCAA regulations as Geezer stated.

UP is still in the process of working with SMC and the WCC to get a waiver to the WCC rule requiring the loss of one year of eligibility.

No waiver....Franklin †will redshirt 1 year and have 2 years of eligibility remaining in the WCC. †With a waiver, he has 3 years of remaining eligibility after his redshirt year. †

Just a thought, but if he has only has 2 years of eligibility at UP after he's used one at SMC, do you suppose upon graduation he can just transfer to another conference for his 4th and final year of college ball? Probably another waiver required... Rolling Eyes

No, actually, if he graduates and plays outside of conference for his fourth year of eligibility, conference rules have no weight for NCAA eligibility.

A final NCAA ruling would be required.

Ah, my mistake. I was thinking the loss of eligibility required a year in addition to the normal transfer process of using a redshirt year. So it's still only one year, but also requires a loss of eligibility rather than redshirting if no waiver is received.

I've read various forums that suggest that neither Franklin nor Malcolm Porter will count against the 13 scholarships.

I don't believe that is true. †For this coming year at least, it would appear Franklin will walk-on and Malcolm will receive the last remaining scholarship....unless something drastically changes.

It's a good situation for subsequent years, however, as it would seem Malcolm could become a walk-on with a free education when TP hits the 2 year mark and his both his son's educations will paid for by UP.

Walk-on Xavier Hallinan's mom is a long time UP employee, and although he'll see little game action, he works hard in practice and makes the guys he's scrimmaging against better players...all while getting a free education.

Had a quick chat with Franklin at the Pilot House....

He began summer school on the Bluff today and is excited to be back "home." †

He also mentioned that "Coach Bennett was really mad" that Franklin decided to transfer. †I told him he should remind Coach Bennett that he played for his own dad when his dad coached at Mesa Community College, and that led to his success at SMC. †

Waiver process to avoid losing a year of eligibility is apparently ongoing.....

My first impression of Franklin: great kid with a tremendously athletic build. †I never saw his dad play, so I can't make a comparison, but Franklin has a set of shoulders that would make a body builder jealous. Shocked

Terry wasn't the kind of guy you would kick sand in his face at the beach.
