  • Sawyer Smith

    I read where he was officially announced as part of the team and is on campus. I was under the impression he was a graduate transfer and eligible immediately until listening to the media day stuff. A reporter asked Stoops about him and said something to the extent of "a guy who won't be able to help you until next season." Is he just a normal transfer who has to sit out a year or is he eligible this year for one season?

    He is a grad transfer and, the last I heard, he is eligible to play this season. I just looked at the UK website and he's not listed on this season's roster. So, I don't know what to make of this.

      Agree, far as I know he will be eligible to play this season. Grad transfers as under some unusual rules in that they don't sign a LOI. Thus, I suspect, the school can not talk about him until he actually enrolls or begins practice. Don't think he attended summer session. If so, they may not be ale to do something like listing him on the roster until practice begins.

      And again far as I know, he has two years of eligibility remaining.

        This is the last article I could find. It's a week old today.

          I ran this by Mark Story, and Mark stated Sawyer is eligible to play this season and has two seasons of eligibility remaining.

            When the reporter said that, what did coach Stoops say?

              After I made post no. 6, I found coach Stoops' Media Day presser on youtube which I've linked below. It begins at about the 4:35 mark. The reporter does not appear to know that Sawyer is eligible this season. He may not have realized that Sawyer is a grad transfer and not a regular transfer. Coach Stoops does not appear to have noticed the blunder either.

                That is what threw me off. I figured maybe the reporter didnt know but Stoops didn't correct him so I started thinking maybe he won't be eligible this year.

                  I believe he is a grad transfer, so he's eligible.

                        Agree. When I finally decided to do my best to live by the Serenity Prayer, things seemed to go a lot smoother.
