Once it was reported that Terry Wilson would miss the rest of the 2019 season, a lot of fans began wondering if he would be granted a medical redshirt.
Mark Stoops was asked about it during his Monday press conference.
“No,” Stoops said. Terry was a three for three. So it won’t matter. Next year will be his last year.”
Terry redshirted during his freshman season at Oregon before transferring to Garden City Community College for one season. When he transferred to Kentucky he had three seasons of eligibility remaining.
Getting a sixth year of eligibility is a tricky case. Most players have to have season ending injuries on two occasions to be granted a sixth year. Players also have a difficult time getting the waiver if they redshirted during their freshman season for developmental reasons, like Wilson did at Oregon.
