I think so
Generally, a student athlete is allotted 5 seasons in order to play 4. What you are describing is an injury waiver, which must be approved by the NCAA. It is not guaranteed.Can he not apply for another year of eligibility due to injury if he has to sit out all year? Sorry, I may not fully understand the NCAA's rules here.
Got it. So if Diarra is capable of playing this year, he should. Good to know, thanks! Hope he can make it out there.
But it's possible. Waivers for various reasons do happen as we know maybe not for Uconn. Didn't Herron get some kind of waiver to play immediately.
That's not at issue. Generally, the redshirt is an automatic. But depending on the reason for the redshirt, a medical waiver may not always be granted.But it's possible. Waivers for various reasons do happen as we know maybe not for Uconn. Didn't Herron get some kind of waiver to play immediately.
All that is true. Rarely do they not grant waivers to kids with legitimate injuries that keep them out full seasons. By the same vein, Gilbert could probably get one if he so desires.
