    So, the word is that Cornell bypassed having one of their recruits taking the SAT due to a language issue.
    The agreement among the IVYs is that all athletes must meet a certain academic criteria to be admitted,
    and Cornell seems to be flouting the academic index, and ruffling many feathers.
    A coach from another IVY told me that only Cornell would do this......
    Wondering if others are hearing about this?

    ( And yes, I am leaving out the recruit's name ).

    About 18 months ago, I was in the company of a freshman at an SEC school who spoke a few words of English. I think he was redshirting while awaiting eligibility, not necessarily a super high-ranked recruit anyway. I was wondering how his college classes were going, but I did not know how to ask him in his own language.

    You're getting a lot of traction with this. Agreements are meant to be broken.

    I can't vouch for their agreement, but many schools will have the 1 recruit per season exception. Also, when students come from foreign countries, many schools allow them to submit TOEFL scores instead of SAT.
