NCAA Talking About Raising Minimum GPA
Could you imagine if the NCAA raised the required GPA from 2.0 to 2.5 for incoming freshmen… sht that might stop like half the top recruits from even enrolling in college. Well the NCAA is thinking about doing just that according to commissioner Mark Emmert.
And the only good news for those dudes that are barely getting by in high school is that the NCAA along with raising the GPA they’re also thinking about allowing partial qualifiers to receive their full scholarships and be able to practice — but not compete — with their team for one academic year.
Here’s what Mark Emmert had to say about the impending GPA raise:
“Since the standard test score was eliminated [and partnered with a sliding scale with GPA], you’re finding more grade inflation. We need to set the bar higher. We’ve already had a lot of work go into issues of academic progress. That’s something we could deal with very quickly.”
