Academics....either didn't keep up grades or cheating
It is very easy to be deemed ineligible to play at Air Force, as they have more expectations, more rules and are more strict about enforcing them. He was starting one week and off the team the next; it could have been because he missed one tiny thing (he was previously on probation, I know). But this was not a Marques Simas, couldn't-give-a-**** after umpteen chances type dismissal.
My step-daughter is good friends with him...he got caught cheating and broke the honor code. He is a good kid. Trust me. Good athlete as well.
Is it considered a dishonorable discharge?
don't think so. He has not been sworn in yet.
Why not? Aren't ROTC students sworn in during their 1st semester? It would make sense that the academies would do it upon entrance.
Heard he is transferring to Virginia. Fairchild recruited him out of high school and is the offensive coordinator down there. Wonder if he convinced the UVA staff to give him a look.
Interesting. The kid has been everywhere. He was enrolled at CSU in 2012 for a short time as well. Not sure why he left.
Probably because CSU sucks
Some of the military guys around here can probably answer this better, but I don't think you can be discharged until you actually receive your commission. Going to the AFA is similar to going to CU, but being in the ROTC. I could be wrong about that. Internal military politics aside, I don't think there's much difference between the two in terms of when you're considered to actually be a member of the military.
You can leave AFA through your soph year. After that, the gummit owns your ass.
He may have taken some summer classes or whatever at CSU, but Jaleel attended the Academy Prep school in 2011/12 (his true freshman year) in order to prepare himself for the academy. He entered the Academy for the 2012/2013 academic year and did not see action.
Huh? He was their starting QB for 3 or 4 games before he got booted.
In the 2013-2014 school year
Semantics semantics. I stand corrected then.
I do wonder how well he would fit.
In what I saw from him playing at AFA he was a very good QB for their system but I wonder how his skills would fit in a system like CU runs. The offense he was running made him more of a runner than passer and the passing did not involve the kind of reads that the CU offense involves or the quality of throws. A lot of his passing yardage came from throwing to one or two reciever routes, running simple routes, that were opened up from the option running game.
He wouldn't be a bad option as a change of pace guy and maybe he can develop into a passer like what the CU offense requires but ???
Good thing that he would only be a backup because he would be behind Sefo his entire time here
You swear an oath upon entering the Academy and you certainly sign the Honor Code.. Thereafter, you're paid as an officer, though all your pay goes towards fees and uni's and the the like.
I would imagine with Sefo, Wood, Gehrke and Apsay all in the pipeline, Awini would be looking at a position change. Completely speculation on my part, but AFA is mostly triple option, so his QB skills are likely better suited to that type of O, which CU does not run.
Kind of what I was thinking. He's a good enough athlete that he could adapt pretty quickly to WR, RB, or maybe DB. He's pretty solidly built but would have to bulk up some to play other positions.
Give him some wildcat formations
I would expect him to end up at WR. I would also expect him to earn a scholarship after running Scout team as a walk-on transfer next year.
Wood is not in the pipeline he will be a senior. I think Awini would have to sit out this year. CU is not as deep as you think. Neither Gehrke or Apsay are known quantities. I think he is more likely a safety if he comes but QB is not a comfort area, IMO.
Rangeview alum here. Only fit Jaleel had with AFA was their offense. Everything else was a mismatch. Definitely has BCS athleticism. If he's choosing between CU & Virginia w/o any schollies on the table then we're getting a sweet deal. Wouldn't rule him out as a solid backup QB in the pistol by 2015. If not QB, could still be a playmaker at WR. He has/had more BCS offers than a lot of our recruits.
Good point. Still, that is four scholly QB's on next year's roster, with all of them except Wood, being underclassmen. I guess it is hard to see a primarily option QB being brought in as a transfer at this point to play QB. I could be wrong though.....
I'm also a Rangeview alum...class of 1994. You?
I thought if you got expelled or whatever you didn't have to sit out? Was he booted from the team only?
