    I've been thinking about going back to school a bit, so here's a question. I played college ball for 2.5 years back when I was in college. I didn't play my full 4 because of health problems and college transfers due to my major. I can play 5.0 right now, better if I practice. Well, all the tournaments I've played, I've played in the open devision. Naturally I hate loans, so I was "dreaming" I could complete my 1.5 years somewhere to finish my major or start a new one on some sort of scholarship.

    I have no health insurance. Who does, right?
    I haven't played college ball in 4.5 years.
    I'm 27 years old.
    I am in very good physical shape. I've been doing crossfit and even ran a tough mudder.

    What are the rules, and the odds. Looking at maybe a D2 or NAIA. Any ideas?

    I'm semi-serious here, and keeping my options open. I just want to know if anyone knows some rules or some odds?

    think NCAA would be out of question, you might be able to try NAIA, but main thing would be contacting coaches and look over rules on compliance

    JLyon is right. You are ineligible for NCAA play, but there are some good NAIA schools you could go to. As a 5.0 player I don't think you'll have trouble finding somewhere to play.
