Will NCAA adopt new football redshirt rule for wrestling?

Division I football players are now allowed to play in up to four games in a season while keeping a redshirt and not losing a year of eligibility. The NCAA previously considered a redshirt burned if a player took the field for a single play of live action in any game.

I dont think the NCAA will allow this for wrestling as they already competition for redshirts as unattached in tournaments. But who knows?

Do you think it would be good or bad for college wrestling?

The deep just got a little deeper.

It completely removes the selling point for the non-Power five that "you can play here this year and not have to sit as a redshirt."

it could also be the start of pulling the 6th year of eligibility for a medical waiver.  The number of games played for keeping a year of eligibility due to injury is also a max of 4.

In theory, you could have a kid play in 6 years of competition.

FR - play 4 but injured -keep a red shirt  (Under the old rule, this red shirt year would be lost and would count as an eligibility year)
RFR - play 4 but injured for remainder (qualifies as 2nd year of injury under medical waiver rules)
RSO - play 12
RJR - play 12
RSR - play 12
GR - play 12 under medical waiver,

I don't know.  Give them a little taste of competition during the year, or use for an injury to the varsity guy.  I think there would be uses for this in wrestling.

I'd love to have Baker Mayfield for one more year!
