How is he doing? Is he cleared to practice for fall camp? Working out over summer? Thanks.

Kid has Duret hemorrhages. Should not be thinking about playing football imo
Exactly. But if they somehow show signs of recession and healing then maybe he could dress out and gives 50-100 plays a year as a extra man.
best case scenario though is that is in 2015.
Duret hemorrhages usually occur secondary to car wrecks. They result from the brainstem being more fixed/less mobile than the hemispheres above. If Klepal is getting these just from football, he is likely predisposed to the process genetically. I would keep him off the field if it were up to me
You're probably right, but if he's cleared and he wants to play, that's up to him and his parents. All you can do is explain the dangers to him. Ultimately it's up to him.
Just from listening to him talk imo it is inevitable he will get cleared eventually and play. He wants to so bad.
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
Why do I think this guy/girl knows what he/she's talking about?
I think it would be a dream come true for him to run through the tunnel, go out on the field and compete as a Nole. But that's only one dream. This is one moment that it's probably wiser to play if safe, stay off the field, and be in good health to fulfill the many other dreams that he'll have the opportunity to fulfill.
One of the problems with letting him practice and play (even if it's severely restricted) is that it eats up a scholarship that could be used on someone who can compete without worry. His not getting clearance means we all (family, coaches, fsu, fans) get to avoid that devaughn-darling-in-the-making feeling.

As I understood it, right now his scholarship does not count against the total for his class. When does that change as a status?
If I was FSU I wouldn't let him play. Even if the kids's parent's take him off scholarship, pay his way, and give Jimbo their blessing, there is still WAY more to lose than to gain. The last thing anybody needs is for something else to happen to this kid. It would make FSU look extremely irresponsible and you bet other coaches (cough cough urban meyer) would use that against us. We look golden because we let him stay on scholarship and don't owe him anything else.
