I remember reading an article about a swimmer that deferred three years for the 2021 Olympics and I know it cost her a year of eligibility. I’m guessing that third year Jade deferred but was taking classes counted as her redshirt year. If you are only allowed one Olympic deferral then next year would be a use it or lose it year.
I have my doubts about ever seeing Shilese competing for Florida, and if she doesn’t start until after Paris she’s going to be 22 years old as a freshman. If she’s not taking classes online then I’m guessing she’ll have two years of eligibility. Maybe three if she graduated from high school late.
I don’t see a difference in her appearance, so I was curious what Doug is seeing. The ellipsis’ in Doug’s post make me feel like he’s implying something that I’m not picking up, but I’m not great at reading tone.
