I Red shirted at a four year university back in 2012, ended up leaving the school to go to community college. Started playing again and now I'm looking to transfer to a four year to play soccer again for Fall 2016. I've had interest from a lot of D1 programs, but didn't know about the five year clock rule until now.
I know my five year clock will be over spring 2017... So my questions are...
1. Do you think a D1 college would recruit someone who is only eligible for one year? (i also don't need scholarship money so I would be a walk on)
2. After I complete that last year of eligibilty, could I still practice with the team for a year, but just not compete in games?
Bonus question if you know the answer: Do I have to have all the credits that I need to transfer to the university before I submit my application? Or can I show that I will be taking more classes in the spring/summer to fulfill those requirements.
