Syracuse Scholarship Counts and Redshirts
Matthew Moyer is currently struggling with a foot injury, and per reports, he will find out in a few weeks the status of that injury. It is possible a redshirt could come up for him; hopefully, things work out the best for him.
Redshirting a player has become rather common place for Syracuse basketball. The past six seasons have all had a player redshirt, and going back to 2006-2007, ever season but one has had a redshirt. That covers a full decade. The last time no players redshirted was in 2009-2010. In 2007-2008 there were two redshirts with Andy Rautins and Devin Brennan-McBride taking the year off; the same was true in 2008-2009 when Scoop Jardine and Wesley Johnson both redshirted. Ironically from 2003 to 2006 there were no redshirts on the basketball team.
You could make a pretty decent squad from the guys who redshirted the past decade.
Here’s a list of the number of scholarship players each season since 2002-2003 and the players who redshirted that year. This includes guys who voluntarily redshirted a season and players who medically redshirted the full season.
