    If a student is recruited for an intercollegiate sport, and attends a SA prep school for a year, is that first year of athletics considered his/her "redshirt" year? Would this student enter the SA with four years of sports eligibility left? Thanks in advance for your responses.

    As I understand it the 4/5 year clock does not start running until the athlete actually starts as a freshman and fills out the NCAA paperwork. I don't think a SA prep school is considered any different than say a 5th year at Choate or Kent.
