    There’s another that USED a college scholarship as a stepping stone the pros. These people are supposed to be student athletes first. Maybe they should sign a contract when entering college that states, if you leave early, you repay the scholarship money.

    Ebron followed the rules as they exist…played three years and opting to declare for draft. Top athletes like Ebron who will go in the early first round are always one play away from losing an opportunity to make millions. Think about what happened to Lattimore. I dint begrudge him taking advantage of the opportunity. The rules are the rules and at least football is way better than college basketball and all of the one and dones. Ebron worked hard, stayed eligible and represented his school well. Good luck to him

    77 Hornet,
    That’s quite possibly the dumbest statement I’ve ever read on here.

    I am all for the concept of the student athlete, but Ebron is making a wise decision. His stock will never be higher and he needs to take advantage of this opportunity. He can always go back and get his degree. The 3 years of education at Carolina gave him the ability to make a wise decision.

    Hornet were you refering to your own statement.

    Your insulting the boards intel here. Every Division 1 full scholarship athelete aspires to 1 day make a living at the next level and that is exactly the process for both footbal and baseball 3 years withthe opportunity to move on if desireable.

    Am I missing something here or is hornet77 comments way off base.

    Hopefully Ebron will eventually finish his degree during summer sessions. I don’t think anyone can complain about the way he’s represented himself, his family, Smith HS and UNC in his three years of collegiate football.

    Well done Mr. Ebron, now go out and beat Dook and finish it off with a great bowl game performance.

    Footballfan needs a spelling lesson from a fan of THE university of North Carolina which is located in Durham.
