Officially, James Louis at FIU & practicing

As more than one FIU student knows after today, Ohio State transfer wide receiver James Louis officially is enrolled and attending classes. He's practiced with the team Friday evening as did West Virginia transfer running back Daquan Hargrett.

Both Louis and Hargrett each will file for a hardship exception waiver. If those exceptions are granted by the NCAA, they would allow Louis, who redshirted last season at Ohio State and Hargrett to play this season instead of sit out, as per normal transfer rules.

The decision on those waivers could take a few weeks.

MEN'S SOCCER Senior Lucas De Croce and junior Sebastian Frings scored to give FIU a season-opening 2-0 win against Nova Southeastern Friday night. VOLLYBALL FIU spanked Fairfield 25-20, 25-16, 25-19 in its season opener Friday night.

Thanks for staying on this.

Great work DJN... I can't wait to see these guys in action.

Thanks! I hope he is allowed to play this year.

Great pick ups. These should help FIU out.

Good stuff. Welcome to FIU James!!

Seems like Louis is now our highest ranked recruit out of HS to now be a Golden Panther - #80 nationally by ESPN. How far we've come. Light speed.

Thanks for the information David.

Good to have them on campus.

This is a huge milestone for the program.

James Louis practicing with the team is a huge milestone? He's not the first 4 star player to attned FIU. Larvez Mars and Willis Wright were also 4 star guys. Neither has yet to make an impact. Winning the Sun Belt and the bowl game were milestones.

what are the chances that they will be granted hardship waivers? what's the likelyhood?

We need everyone to come to our opening kickoff on Thursday, Sept. 1st vs North Texas @ FIU Stadium. This is televised game on ESPN3 so we need everyone to come to the game and support your Golden Panthers. Go FIU !
