Swampy, you get five calendar years to play four seasons of competition starting the day in which you enroll at any college. Last year he received a medical redshirt year. This year he played 2 games before being hurt and has to sit for a year due to his transfer. Last year and this year are two of his five calendar years. He is not eligible to play until the second semester of next year, so if he doesn’t receive a waiver to play the first semester of 2019 he will have 2.5 years of eligibility. If he receives the waiver he’ll have three years. His waiver is for the one year in residence rule for transfers.No he already got a waiver for his freshman year. If he gets another waiver of the two games he played this year, then CJ will be eligible in October with 4 years remaining; if not he will be eligible in December of 2019 with 3 1/2 years left.
He can at some point petition the NCAA for an extension to the “five year clock”
