On our way back from our tip to Minnesota, we stay in Bloomington, Illinois. On the news that night it was reported that Normal West High School basketball star, Francis Okoro, had chosen Oregon over Purdue and Illinois. That is not the story that I want to write about, however. The 6’9″ 245 lb. forward is only a junior. He plans to play for Oregon this coming year.Evidently, in the state of Illinois and maybe other states as well, if you have enough credits (or the right credits) you can reclassify and move up your graduation by one year. I have heard of one semester early graduation, but never one year with the system called reclassification. If you know of such a system, give me a call and I will re-write this blog.I hope this young man is a good student and is capable of handling his classwork at Oregon. He certainly has the basketball skills.
