One of my favorite policies and practices in college football is the early enrollment system.
A recruit graduates high school early (who needs that diploma anyway?) and starts his freshman season in the spring semester instead of the fall.
This allows him to participate in all 15 spring practices plus the spring game, a tradition growing in popularity as America's insatiable drive for college football swells.
Most of the time, enrolling early gives the player a jump on position competition and familiarizes him with the playbook. In more rare occasions, it can lead to a starting job.
Here are the 10 most intriguing early enrollments to watch as spring practice kicks off around the country in the next few weeks.
