So the moral of this story is beware of Moms when their son is last named "Collins".
He should have committed to Washington. Arkansas wouldn't be far enough away from that insanity.
Thank You Jesus!!!
Bwah ha ha! Post of the thread right here!
I think legal age of majority is 18 in all states except Alabama, where it is 19, and that's the default for legal contract age. But any private party (e.g. the NCAA) can define what they require and can effectively up the age that way. Rental car companies do this for example.
If the letter of intent don't fit, you must acquit
Never Gets Old
Alabama's not the only state that's not 18; MS is like 20 or 21.
At any rate, I read somewhere that a recruit had to have a parent/guardian sign off on the LOI if they were under 21. That kind of negates the issues with regard to where the kid lives, where he's going to school, etc.
To be clear, that was my point. You can always contract in a minimum age, and by doing so they just avoid figuring out which state law applies, what it is, or if the kid is even the age he claims to be. If you're in high school, your parent has to sign. It's simple.
Or if momma pitches a fit, you can't commit.
