Looks like spring sport senior athletes will be given another year of eligibility. NCAA looking into what to do with those that played winter sports. Would be fascinating if they offered another year of eligibility to Seniors in winter sports??

So far they've only announced Spring sports. Basketball is considered a Winter sport.

If he could return he should not and most likely will. He needs to start to get paid for playing he is older because of being a missionary. Sam is gone regardless as is Brito.

Exactly, spring sports seasons are far more impacted. It makes little sense to grant an entire new season, when it was essentially played out. I get there is disappointment about the NCAA tourney, but a whole year for a handful of games?

There is no way this rule would apply to winter sports. You arent getting a full year because of at most a few games missed. Merrill would be gone regardless and should be. Time for him to make money as a basketball player. Sad the one milestone he didn't accomplish was taken away from him. We will never know if he could have led us to a tourney win this year.
