    I thought you only have 5 years to play 4 in college. Didn't she play ALL FOUR YEARS. How does she have any eligibility left ?

    Yeah she’s allowed one year.

    Heather Schrieber(sp?) did it. So did several others.

    If you play a sport for 4 years and graduate I believe you can play 1 year in a different sport. I don't know the details of the rule though.

    You are exactly correct the NCAA allows a student athlete 5 years to complete 4 years of eligibility in any one sport. A 5th year can either be used as a red shirt or participation in another sport which occasionally happens and is what Bekah is taking advantage of!
