Disagree. They are kids. HS is a one time experience. If they have goals in HS, (wrestling/track) they should have the opportunity to complete their experience.JMPO - and I totally get why a kid would choose to not enroll early - is that it's always better to enroll early. Will it make or break a kids career? Of course not. But it absolutely effects your chances of playing as a true freshman.
Bryce Benhart decided not to enroll early so that he could go for a state championship in wrestling. I don't fault him one bit, but it's probably going to cost him the opportunity to start in 2019. If guys like Benhart and Hutmacher are going to redshirt anyways, then it's no big deal really. But if these kids want to come in and truly compete for a starting spot or a place in the regular rotation (especially when the team has a need and opportunity for that to happen), they're doing themselves a disservice almost by not getting on campus early.
Like I said, I get why kids might not want to do it, and i'm fine if they don't. But the way I look at it, these kids are coming to Nebraska to play football. That's going to be their primary focus. Not wrestling. Not track. JMPO, i'd want them to start focusing on that ASAP. They don't have anything left to prove in HS.
