As reported on a number of sites, including Only Gators Get Out Alive, Florida Gator four-star DL recruit Leon Orr (New Port Richey, FL), who's currently enrolled at UF, may have to return to high school.

Apparently the NCAA Eligibiltiy Center has informed him that some of his high school credits may not have transferred to college.

If Orr has to return to high school, he may be eligible to return in time for Florida's summer training session.

This story just underscores the reality that at the college level, football players still have to deal with the annoying fact that school and its attendant activities are in play.

Addtionally, as much as we want to race to rank recruiting classes, the dust still has to settle and the ink has to dry before we crown a champ.
