Junior point guard Anthony Collins has been granted a medical redshirt by the NCAA because of the 24 games he missed last season due to complications from offseason surgery.
With his medical hardship waiver approved, Collins has two remaining years of eligibility left.
The surgery he had last summer was to remove an inflamed bursa sac in his knee. The procedure went according to plan, but Collins’ knee never fully healed.
Even though Collins’ redshirt was approved, his stats from last season will still count. He was only able to play in eight games last season, during which he averaged 6.9 points and 5.9 assists per game.
