A little advice -

A signed player has become injured during her HS season. This injury may require surgery and a few months of recovery - what happens ?

Angel Shamblin blew out a knee and Houston hung in there.

What information are you looking for? If she has signed a scholarship offer, it stands for her first year. If she has signed an NLI, it is still in effect.

The biggest thing is to communicate with the school, as they can advise you as to what needs to happen to be sure she is ready to play in the fall (or next spring depending on the injury.)

If you have any specific questions, please post them or PM me and I would be happy to help.

So in a situation like this how does the coach handle it ?

I'm just thinking in hypotheticals here .. does a coach have an option to red shirt a player that comes in injured ? can a coach rescind a scholarship in the event of an injury to an incoming freshman ?

Agreed. Once the scholarship offer and NLI are signed, the player is set for the first year. If she is not able to play the first year (or the coach chooses not to based on where she is at developmentally from the time lost), that can count as a redshirt year. Depending on the severity of the injury, technically a less-than-sympathetic coach could not renew the scholarship after the first year if they thought the player wouldn't be able to return to the level they were at when recruited.
