Countdown to Camp: Freshmen Get Head Start
Thu Jul 28, 2005
For the first time this summer, football players received an extra five weeks of development courtesy of the NCAA. Due to declining graduation rates in men's and women's basketball several years ago, scholarships in those sports were allowed to extend to include the second session of summer school in the summer before a player's freshman year. Hoopsters have been reaping the benefits ever since. Football was added to that category for the first time by the NCAA in 2005, which means Carolina has the entire class of 22 freshmen on campus taking two classes each and working out with strength and conditioning coach Jeff Connors and the rest of the football team.
