Rumor has it that Freshman pitcher J D Melton is transferring to the U S Naval Academy at Annapolis. Can anyone prove or disprove this?

My understanding is the Academies do not accept transfer students. So Melton would be starting over as a freshman with 4 years to go to graduate plus the obligatory service in the Navy/Marines afterwards. Some students go this route when they don't get accepted out of high school, but it is a long road. I don't think he would do it to further his athletic career. Ther would have to be some other motivation.

Hopefully there isn't anything to this. But, if Wofford athletics didn't have bad luck, they wouldn't have any luck at all.

Actually, in this instance, it speaks well of the quality of our kids even though it would really suck for our program.
