totally agree. Each young person's case is different. The Coaches already know him well and his home life or they will now dig deeper to understand his situation and his reaction to doing something stupid and immature. 

I hope they keep him. If every teenager was thrown away and not given another chance, then there would not be much hope ofr these kids as I think more become quality adults than go down the bad path of life..

Gus seems to have a knack for judging a kids character and seeing the difference between a stupid mistake and a trend. He also has a process for making sure they walk the straight and narrow going forward. I wouldn't be surprised at all to learn that he has been presented with a series of expectations that must be lived up to between now and February, and will have another set of expectations to live up to once he's on campus.

He should get a second chance, but let's not think a DUI is just a stupid mistake.  Driving drunk kills people and a DUI is a serious charge.

It's a stupid mistake that is extremely common. It's like weed, except actually dangerous.

So is weed if you are driving.

Maybe, maybe not. I was referring more to possession, besides.

The point is that both things are extremely common behaviors. One is probably becoming more so while the other becomes less so- I think most of us have a story from our own youth or have heard a story from an older generation of law enforcement being *extremely* lenient on drunk driving- but engaging in either in no way makes one a deviant. Now, if he gets caught again, then he's a big ol' dummy. McLoofus's Court, Judge Loof presiding, will give you 2 strikes on weed but not on DUI.

A stupid mistake is getting drunk and falling down the stairs...not driving a car.  It's far less common than it once was, but still deadly and illegal.

That's not to say I am against bringing this kid into the family and supporting his growth and maturation.

Prob enough time to give him the second chance to see if this is a pattern.   If he is going to goof again, I suspect it will be sooner rather than later.  

Also, he sounds very African.  If I heard the right podcast.  I mean, his folks are from there.   I have taught a few and typically they have strong, strong family values.  My son had a friend whose older brother had to return to Africa for a year b/c he was messing up in school.   His dad made him go live with relatives in Africa.  He came back the next year changed.   

I hope he has strong family ties and my hunch is right.

His point was that Bessent was another HS player that got arrested before signing day or shortly after while in HS. Bessent had a shorter leash than normal when he finally got on campus and eventually flamed out. Gulf is implying the result in these similar circumstances won’t turn out any better than the other.

Thanks for your response Jeff.  You said it much better than I could have.  I also believe in second chances and my hope is that if Jibunor signs he will learn from this incident,  change his behavior for the better,  and not go the route of Bessent.
