Maurice can't play for any NCAA D1 program in 2018. He won't be eligible. Nebraska is just trying to get him to the point where he can officially enroll, and then redshirt. He would be allowed to practice, but would not be allowed to play in any games under the new 4 game redshirt allowance. The NCAA has changed their tone on allowing kids a little more flexibility to get into D1 programs, but he still needs to earn at least a 20 on his ACT. I don't know if that's attainable for someone who has already barely graduated high school. At the risk of initiating too much hyperbole, Washington runs like Eric Dickerson. Yoi do whatever it takes to bring in a running back who looks like Eric Dickerson while galloping to the end zone.
