I spoke with Coach Menzies because I've heard several people say Wendell McKines is leaning one way or another regarding a redshirt season. Menzies told me that the plan is to wait until he gets on the floor to see what he is capable of. Doctors said that he would be able to get on the court in two weeks from today so there is a timeline for now I suppose. With injuries to Troy Gillenwater, Hamidu Rahman Gordo and even coach Menzies, whose back was bothering him so much so on Monday that Gerald Lewis did the postgame interview with Jack Nixon, I'm curious to know if McKines would come back for conference just because the team needs him, or if he would be patient enough to sit the rest of the season and come back at full strength next year.
Just in case you were wondering, Hamidu Rahman would be eligible for a medical redshirt if that's a route the Aggies want to explore. Since the injury took place in the first half of the season and Rahman had only played in 8 of the Aggies' 30 games, or just under 30 percent, he would be eligible for a medical redshirt if his doctor determines that he cannot fully participate. Haven't asked about it yet, but I'm sure some of you have thought about it and I was curious myself.
