Sometimes in our sports-obsessed culture, we forget that college athletes are indeed in college.
The collegiate experience is unlike any other experience in many ways, as many newly-minted adults are away from home for the first time and have to learn how to fend for themselves.
That’s especially true for the college student-athlete, who not only has to adjust to life on campus as a student, but also has to be a scholar and a representative of the university on the gridiron.
It can be a difficult transition, even with the help of academic advisers, and Miami University released a video highlighting three players that took the early enrollment route.
It’s a pretty interesting (if limited) look into the life of an early-enrollee, a type of recruit that very often gets overlooked by most casual observers. Personally, I hope there’s more of a series of videos like this highlighting this unique situation, but this is a good stand-alone as well.
