    Didn't see this anywhere else.

    Fascinating story, really. I wish the writer has discussed more about the reasons why families would adopt after a person had reached 18 years old. It was mentioned, but not discussed much, and that was my main question.

    Adoption after age 18 should be specifically excluded by the NCAA as a means of evading improper-benefits charges.

    Definitely not the case here:

    Wish people would stop comparing this to the Michael Oher situation. He was a minor and had high school yet to finish when the Tuohy family took him in.

    If adopting a 20-year-old isn't a blatant attempt to end run the NCAA, then it's slightly creepy.
