This could be good recruiting for the ivy's in general. Get your degree from our school and you can get your graduate degree paid for as well. With Grant Mullin playing at Cal Berkley this year, this would make 3 CU athletes going the route in 2 years. (I thought someone from Cornell also did this route).

According to this, Nizolek is not getting his graduate degree paid.


But it's still an impressive signing.

I'm looking for clarification. I didn't think the fifth year is a generally
available option, but just applies in case of injuries. If an Ivy undergraduate is injured for a year, the only way he or she can later use that year at the Ivy is by taking an academic leave as well??? If they stay in school and graduate with their original class, that eligibility year is lost at the Ivy but can be used under NCAA rules elsewhere???

Much more complicated than that. Different Ivies have different academic requirements. At Harvard once you earn 32 credits, you are considered as having satisfied graduation requirements. At a school like Penn you need 36/37 credits for certain courses of study and have the option of double majoring which can even involve more credits. So - in that case - dropping out of school (as is basically required at a school like Harvard) is less of an issue.

Then you have the additional complexity of two semester sports like basketball versus one semester sports like football. Since in a 9th and final semester for football you only need to take one credit if that's all you need to finish up (as opposed to the NCAA mandated 4 credits to compete), it's far easier to play football in a 5th year than a sport like basketball where you would need to take 4 in the 9th semester and then finish up in semester 10.

Of course the underlying assumption is you haven't already used your 4 years of eligibility and you qualify for year 5 participation under the Ivy rule which primarily covers injury related "redshirting" but has language which is a little broader and has been used in other non injury related circumstances. Alternatively you are ok if year 5 is only your 4th year of enrollment because you took a leave (as is the case at Harvard).
