Redshirt question

Recommended Posts

There is no hard and fast date to apply for a redshirt, though.


For instance, if you went down early in the year, didn't apply for the 'shirt, but were eligible (thinking you could come back later in the year), it ends up that you can't come back medically later (when you thought you could), then you can still apply toward the end of the year.


Here is the language:


Medical Hardship: A student-athlete may begranted an additional year of competition bythe conference for reason of "hardship."Hardship is defined as incapacity resultingfrom an injury or illness that has occurredunder all of the following conditions:


1. The incapacitating injury or illness occursin one of the four seasons of intercollegiate competition at any two-year or four-year collegiate institutions;




2. The injury or illness occurs prior to thecompletion of the first half of the playingseason that concludes with the NCAAchampionship in that sport;




3. The injury or illness occurs when thestudent-athlete has not participated in more than two contests or dates ofcompetition or 20 percent (whichever isgreater) of the institution's completedcontests or dates of competition.


So only the injury has to occur before the halfway point of the season; the application can come at any time, allowing the player to attempt to rehabilitate before applying.

Right. But it's not a hard-and-fast date for each school. Also, there is no application deadline. I think that was the question, when would he have to declare.


Hughes isn't technically injured, so a medical redshirt is probably out of the question anyhow. But even if he was, he would meet both criteria and could wait all year to apply (til the end of the season anyhow).
