    No, but they should lose some cred with prospective NFL franchises.

      Scholarships now are often for four Years guaranteed, however some are year to year.
      if a college kid opts out, colleges would have the right not to renew him the following year , depending on what his paperwork said.4 Star kids for sure get a four year scholie, even a five year if they want it but kids with less leverage don’t they are quietly asked to transfer, often to a lower division or conference.
      Coaches will tell you, it’s much worse to get a kid signed for four years that can’t play than it is to lose a kid to another school.

        No, IMO you can't give someone an option & then punish them for using it.

              To me it’s about the intent. Was it for fear of health/family member? Did the kid just not like having to compete vs a 5th year Senior and wanted an easy path to a staring gig, and a year off with a hall pass to get BJs from coeds all season (...nice....) Did a coach push a player to do that to better even out his rosters? So many situations to consider. The Why matters more than anything to me. But since you can’t judge for intent, no, imo you can’t penalize anyone if you allow for it.
