Baker is arrogant,cocky,a villain. Pretty much a throw back Miami player and I love it. Now, can he back it up is the question. Miami is at its best when everyone hates us. Right now we are irrelevant. Edit: I mean Tate Martell

Jalen to Oklahoma,didn't see that coming!

I just hope we don't have to play him,for many reasons, but mostly because I would have a hard time pulling against him.

Rumor is he is graduating in May. That's what someone from an Ohio state site was saying

It’s possible if he came in with a ton of college credits from high school.

Thanks for posting, I got this thru Tide Pride, but not good at posting links.

This post is exactly why I would have such a hard time pulling against him, even as a Bommer Sooner.  He is one heck of a young man and I will always wish him the best in whatever he does!

That's what I plan on doing when my daughter gets in high school. I think she can handle the load

My son entered Bama as a freshman but with enough college credits to be a second semester sophomore. He will be able to graduate with a masters in engineering in 4 years.

High schools offer so many AP courses now, but it is really difficult.

Not always worth it. I would have finished my engineering degree in 3.5 years if I didn't have a two semester senior design project.

Bringing in a lot of classes means you step onto campus taking the harder degree related classes. You also don't get the GPA boost from some of those entry level classes. 

If your daughter is fortunate enough to be on scholarship I'd at least consider not using some of the college credits from high school. That can help with Grad School admissions in the future. 

My brother took even more credits into college than I did since the high school was paying for the AP tests at the time. Almost cost him grad school admission. 

As Porter said below, dual enrollment is a great option.

Have her duel enroll at a local college as soon as she can in high school.

That's impressive even if it was at Bama.:)

Really? Hmm giving me a lot to think about. I always heard great things about the duel enrollment. Thanks!

We liked the AP route. There is a fee for the test at the end of the semester, I think it was about $200.00,maybe less.  They take a test and if they score a 3-5 they get the college credit, depending on level of class,  for that class going into college. Some colleges don't take all of them, but most major universities do. Bama took every one of my sons AP credits even the one he took as a freshman in HS. That is how he had so many college credits going in as a freshman.

But I will say  your kid has to be dedicated to studying, my son is an advid learner, my daughter is a junior in HS and has taken 3 AP classes,she is more social and just not like her brother in that regard.

The nice thing was they get the bump on GPA with these class which helps with schools who look at GPA for scholorship $$.

Yeah my daughter is definitely more social and she plays sports so that takes up a lot of time too. She is only 11 so I have plenty of time to think about it. Thanks for the info
