Gorman’s Nate Starks dismissed from school, won’t play for Gaels in 2013
Nathan Starks of Bishop Gorman runs for a touchdown during the Sunset Regional semifinals against Palo Verde at Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas on Friday, November 9, 2012.
Bishop Gorman rising senior running back Nate Starks was dismissed from school for violating school rules and won’t return, school officials said Monday.
The 6-foot, 200-pound Starks is Nevada’s top recruiting prospect for the class of 2014. He is a four-star recruit with scholarship offers from the likes of Notre Dame, Alabama, Oklahoma and USC.
Starks, who Rivals.com considers the nation’s No. 26 overall prospect, rushed for 1,821 yards and 27 touchdowns last year in helping Gorman win its fourth straight state championship.
It’s unclear where he’ll play in 2013, but it won't be in Nevada, said Donnie Nelson, the assistant director for the Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association. NIAA transfer rules dictate transfers from a private school such as Gorman sit out one year, regardless if the athlete is transferring to a public school or another private school.
Nelson said no exceptions are made for a hardship of being dismissed from school.
“The basic rule is you can’t leave one school and go to another to escape academic or citizenship issues,” Nelson said. “Anytime you transfer schools, you are presumed ineligible for 180 school days or one year.”

Very interesting...I'm sure there will be a ton of discussion about this over the next few days/weeks. How will this affect our recruiting of him? We shall see.
Wow. Some people just don't have any sense.
maybe he as a cousin or uncle in Norman he can go live with. ;) it will get all worked out Im sure...
I'm hell when I'm well.. And, I am never sick!
I don't recollect our last "citizenship issue" recruit from Nevada working out particularly well. Hopefully it is something he can work through, for his sake.
Since Notre Dame has already pulled their offer it will be interesting to see who follows.

Things are rarely perfect or totally bad.
Reality=closer to the middle.
Never as bad as it seems, never as good as it seems.
I hear that one incident was he stole an ipad from a fellow student.
I heard IPAD and a drug Test. That came from a parent whose kid goes to Gorman. Student rumors. Do they test kids in high school? Having seen nothing official rumors are the only thing I heard. I still plan on watching Gorman play at least one game though, I want to see Cunningham play QB.
Heard the same thing. One day failed piss test and the next day stole an iPad. Sounds a little full of himself if you ask me.
