You lost me on this. Why would he lose a year of playing eligibility?

Andrew Slater @Andrew__Slater
It depends on the ex-Arkansas coach. He’s brought in his nephew to start. Hsu has the leverage. twitter.com/bags232/status…

How is referring to CMA and TJC in the above tweet NOT a shot?
Seriously?
"...depends on the ex-Arkansas coach...he brought in his nephew to start...Hsu has the leverage."
A Hollywood script is 'sold' on no more than 8 words to frame a concept.
Above you have the shot at both our HC and a legitimate AC and HC in-the-making and the reference to the 'struggle' vis-a-vis Hsu.
It's obvious, man.


hahaha that is funny.
Hsu doesn't have shit. Why does he have leverage? Because if SJU don't hire him then LJ will go to wku?
lol, there is no one person bigger then the team, LJ better realize that.
If he don't then oh well good bye.

I don’t think he plans on playing more than one year at most, regardless.

If he transfers will have to sit a year. Hence 2 years for him to get 1 more year of college bb. Doesn’t make sense,

I take that back. I thought he played one year at JUCO but did two academic years there.

You get 5 years to complete 4 is the general rule. Remember he sat 1st year at New Mexico St. (that is his redshirt year). He then played 1 year of JUCO and 1 year at SJU. That is 3 years of college. If he transfers and sits next year that is 4 years. Therefore his 5th year, 2020-21, will technically be his last year of eligibility even though he will have only played basketball in 3 of those years. He would have to petition the NCAA for a 6th year. That can be granted but normally that is granted due to injury.

And he’s 21 now right? Normal senior age. He xfers and sits out a year he would be 23 for draft....I can’t see him doing that.

Actually, this is a unique situation. Figueroa enrolled at NMSU for the spring semester only. To your point, he did not play basketball there. But, does that one semester count as a full year or a half year? It may not count at all, or he may very well be granted a waiver.

Of course it counts as a year. If he played in 1 game even in the 2nd semester regardless of whether he enrolled only in 2nd semester he would have burned that year of playing eligibility.
