Yesterday, news broke that Stanford guard Aaron Bright dislocated his right shoulder and will miss the rest of the season.
It’s a big blow for the Cardinals, who are dealing with a lack of perimeter depth as it is and have been forced to use a bigger lineup. But here’s the kicker for Bright: he’s going to have to transfer after the season if he wants to remain on scholarship.
According to a report, Bright will apply for a medical redshirt, but since he’s a senior this season and Stanford has already committed their four open scholarships for next season Bright will have to transfer if he wants to take advantage of that fifth year of eligibility.
Bright will undergo surgery on January 3rd. The MVP of the 2012 NIT and the 10th all-time assist leader in Stanford history, Bright will be eligible immediately wherever he ends up as a graduate transfer.
