I just heard Coach O. say that Burrow graduated from Ohio St. in 3 years. I know Jalen Hurts was also a graduate transfer. That means that 1/2 the CFP starting QBs this year were graduate transfers.
I hadn't realized until just now that as a graduate transfer you are immediately eligible to play, whereas undergraduate transfers need to sit out a full year before playing (I believe).
My question is: what are the requirements for these guys academic-wise as graduate transfers? Do they still have to enroll for a certain number of credits, and do those classes have to be graduate school classes or are they undergraduate classes? OR-- do they literally just not have to enroll/pass any classes while at their new school? If the latter, that would just seem funny to me that these guys are basically college football mercenaries who come to a school without even having to go to class, they are at college literally just to win football games. Is that the case or no?
