Please Help (Redshirt vs Grayshirt)
My little brother signed a scholarship to Louisiana-Monroe in February. He was supposed to start school in June and redshirt his first year of school. However, we found out yesterday that he has a torn ACL. Now the coaching staff is saying they think it would be best to grayshirt him this year and have him enroll in January. I'm not too familiar with the grayshirt process and everything that I've found so far is very vague in how it all works with the scholarship. What do you all know about grayshirting and how injuries affect scholarships? What would you recommend if it were your family going through it? And please share if you know of any other website or forum that could be helpful for me to visit and get some more information. I'm trying to get as many opinions as possible before I suggest what I think he should do. Thanks
