    46.01 at Tyson. That's a low altitude best for HS if he's eligible for HS records. My apologies if I've fired the starter's pistol on the next HS eligibility riot.

    ESPN3 showed the meet and it is on replay however, I must warn you, that their coverage ended right as the OD 400m was lining up for the men. So we didn't get to see it.

    Unless something changed this week, yes, he's certainly eligible. Already set 300 HSR this winter. What a season he's having from 60 to 500!

    Was a solid run, but think there is more in the tank. He went out behind the leaders and closed well. ESPN feed cut out because UA couldn't broadcast a recruitable athlete on the video board. Heard it was planned once he was listed in the meet.

    Unless that is an oversized track, 46.01 would put him 5th in the world per IAAF.

    Is this a new rule? Certainly he wouldn't have been the first recruitable athlete to appear in a televised meet on a college campus.

    Two others ran faster than that in the same meet yesterday.

    Could someone explain why the eligibilty was brought up? Is the kid old for a sophmore or something? Or is it just because he is running so fast. I mean 46 flat indoors for a highschool sophmore?

    Ok. Still, top 10 in the world for a HS sophomore is pretty amazing.

    He's 5 weeks from being 17, so he'll graduate at 19, which isn't remotey uncommon.

    That was me and I couldn't remember if he had turned pro, was still competing for his HS or not. He competed under his club team name at the Tyson meet.
