D1 schools will sometimes agree to let a kid make a dual commitment to the D1 and to a JUCO. This is usually done when the kid has not qualified academically, and is unlikely to do so in time to enroll at the D1 school. If he pulls a rabbit out the hat and manages to qualify, he will enroll at the D1. Otherwise he will end up at the JUCO. The dual commitment gives the kid some certainty that he will end up one of two places, and eliminates the scrambling around to find a JUCO when he finds out two weeks before school D1 classes start that he again did not get a high enough score on the SAT/ACT.
