I am uncertain if this writer had any first-hand experience in any phase of the collegiate recruiting of student athletes. High school grade point averages are only one aspect of the process. This young man will graduate with a certified high school diploma from an accredited Ohio secondary school. That puts him into a very large pool of people this June.
Another aspect of the collegiate recruiting process is the athletic ability of the prospective student-athletes. In this classroom, Jordan McCune is an "A + Student".
I might suggest that any further discussion of this student or any student and their performance in the classroom be a non-forum item.
Unless you are one of his teachers and base your comment upon first-hand academic knowledge, you should refrain from making statements that are only hearsay. If you are a teacher of his, I ask why you are making any comments about your students anyway!!!!!
A side bar to this posting is the personality of the player. He has grown into a very personable young man that any employer would love to have as an employee. Let's talk sports-this is not the academic hotline--it is JJ HUDDLE
