UF granted him a full release. He can go anywhere and play right away.
That’s not within UF’s control.
He has to qualify and be offered elsewhere, but I think the poster was stating that Florida placed no restrictions on his transfer options.
I don’t believe that Florida can waive the one-year sit out requirement imposed by the NCAA.
Stokes (or anyone else) would need to get a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately (there might also be conference restrictions, depending on where he goes, but since he's almost certainly leaving the SEC I don't think that comes into play). The NCAA is infinitely more likely to grant such a waiver when the original school doesn't object, but Stokes would still need to cite a specific reason outlined in NCAA rules.
I gotcha. I thought he was referring to restrictions such as, not being able to transfer to another SEC school. I didn’t read the second line of his post.
You are correct- Florida can’t override ncaa sit-out requirements.
It it does raise an interesting question: What if a school basically cuts a kid... doesn’t need him and decides not to renew his scholarship? Does that kid still need to sit out? If not, I guess the school can somewhat waive the sit-out requirement but categorizing the transfer as something different.
Word is is that if a player claims mental distress (depression, home sickness, etc.) he or she is very likely to get a waiver to play elsewhere immediately.
That makes me feel so depressed. What do I win Johnny?
I am of the belief that Stokes has some skills but they are limited.
He has a ton of skills, they’re just at offensive tackle
I mean any kind of bullshit will get you there. I hear that Brenton Cox was with Justin Fields when Fields heard racist statements, so Cox should be good to go. /S
I believe his best skill is in the buffet line...
Man, some just can't resist kicking the kid in the a$$ on the way out the door. Good job, Gators.
