"He will not be part of the team this year," Coker said.
"If he gets his coursework, he can come in January. He can't participate until the fall, but I believe he can come in January. It's really not semantics. He's an International student. Obviously, courses weren't accepted by the clearinghouse. It wasn't anything to do with intelligence or anything like that. He's done everything we asked him to do. He made his test scores and everything. Now, we just have to make sure he gets where he needs to be, gets his coursework and gets back here midterm here."
When Coker was asked if Orlando Franklin would attend a prep school, he responded, "He hasn't made that decision yet. There's a couple of options there. We'll see what he decides to do."
