A Swan Song For Deon Long

New, comments

Word is trickling out today that Deon Long has officially failed to achieve his needed test score and will enroll at Hargrave Military Academy for a prep year.

This isn't all bad news, though.  Sure, we miss out on Long this season, but he will have a year of playing football (without losing a year of eligibility) and have a full year to get his needed score.  If he gets that score within the next six months, though, he can enroll in January as a greyshirt, go through spring practice, and compete for the team as a true freshman in the fall of 2010.  Hargrave also has a very good reputation of keeping signees with their original schools.  

In sum, some expected bad news with a definite light at the end of the tunnel.  Though, I have to admit, it is depressing logging into CBSSports and seeing the graphic below, knowing he won't be on campus this fall.
