ABL players heading to college...

With a number of players either returning to the ABL during their College break or heading over for the first time, how many teams will lose players???
Considering this should be happening very soon, will this effect teams who are pretty much already in the finals???

Forestville- Fildes, Wernham
Norwood- Had 2 from what I heard, Grantham???
Centrals- Clausen
Southern- Wood
Eastern- Williams

I know some of these teams aren't playing finals, but surely there must be more players heading over??? Wasn't there something on here about a couple of North players heading over???

I guess the other question is, will they be allowed back? I'm not sure what divisions these guys are playing over in the States, but with the new rule coming out that they are not meant to be playing ABL, this could cause a bit of trouble for some "returnees"...

Playing in any unauthorised competition, one which is not an authorised USA "summer season" comp, by the NCAA, NJCAA, NAIA etc, in terms of their rules, could potentially see any player lose their scholarship at their College. They should make sure they and their Coach at College determine exactly what they can and cannot do.

Don't you think that these guys would have already gotten permission?

Everyone is so vague with the facts on this site. Who is going to college? Is it their first year, what college are they going to? What is the details of tne new rules?

So if both Trent and John leave for the states a week after the ABL finals doesn't this mean they'll miss out on playing Junior finals?
Does anyone know what college they are both heading to so I can keep track of them?
