For players that live far away from home

and when they get time off for Christmas, how do they get home if they or their families don’t have the means to do it? Can the school pay for that is that against the rules? Or even say Dabo invited them to come to his house?

I believe something was written earlier this year that recruits who live within a certain distance are allowed to go home over short breaks. Dabo and others are closely involved with who is leaving and who is not and make sure that those who can't go home have somewhere to go. I believe they said the players who live far away are encouraged to go with other players or to a coach's house.

Similar to Thanksgiving, I'm pretty sure there's a limit...

on how far Dabo will permit them to travel but he always makes sure they all have somewhere to go during the holidays. Those who live too far way to travel during the short break some spend that time with Dabo, other coaches, or other players.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

I believe the team flies into Dallas on 12/24, so they won't be spending Christmas Day with their nuclear families - but they will get to spend it with their brothers.
