Dexter McCluster makes his needed SAT score

Dexter McCluster (Ath, Largo, FL) - The Orlando Sentinal's preseason #21 overall rated prospect from the state of Florida shocked many when he decommitted from South Florida, turned down a scholarship offer from the University of Florida, and signed with the Rebels.McCluster rushed for over 2,000 yards in a very tough division and was named the Pinellas County Player of the Year for his play on the field.

But there has always been one issue with McCluster, his grades.

That issue looks to be over.

"I just got back my SAT score back. I got an 810 on it."

What did Dexter need on the SAT to become a full qualifier?

"I needed a 720. I previously had a 640, so I was pretty nervous, but I did it. Right now, I am just waiting to send in my final transcript to the (NCAA) clearinghouse."

Dexter was taking two night courses the last time we spoke to meet his core needs. How is McCluster doing in those classes?

"I have already finished them. I made an A and a B. I am taking four classes in school right now. I have 2 A's and 2 B's in them."

What does McCluster have to have in those four classes to become a full qualifier?

"I just need to make at least a B in each class. I have 2 A's and 2 B's right now. In one of those B's, I am borderline from an A. I should end up with 3 A's and 1 B."

Can McCluster afford to make a C in any of these four classes?

"No, I have to make at least a B in each class, but I am not anywhere close to a C in any of them. I only have 10 more days left in school. I am exempt from finals in two of the classes, so I really only have two to go. It looks good, real good."

What are Dexter's first year goals at Ole Miss?

"I just want to do well in the classroom so I am can make my parents happy. I want to make something out of myself. It would be a joy to make the rotation, but if I have to redshirt, I will just work real hard to make myself a better player so when I do get out on the field, I will be ready."

When will Dexter arrive at Ole Miss?

"I am moving down there on May 25th. Orientation is on the 26th, so I getting down there the day before. I am going to be taking a couple of classes in June and July. I can not wait to get started.
