Can you attend a 4-year school and be recruited for sports as a nontraditional student?

On behalf of a friend, I'm wondering if it's possible to be recruited for college athletics *and* earn a bachelor's degree as a nontraditional student. My friend is 24 and has experience in two sports. He has previously earned a 2-year degree from a technical college but is considering going back to school for education in something else. Paying for a bachelor's degree out of pocket is not going to work because his parents only planned to pay for one degree (which is of course reasonable) so his only shot might be getting an athletic scholarship.

In short, are there restrictions that might prevent him from playing college athletics at his age?

This person should have at least a year of or up to two years of eligibility left, the NCAA is very tricky when this matter comes to play. One thing, did they play any sports while in technical school. The best thing to do is look up the rules and see where your friend situation fits and go from there. Good luck to your friend.

It comes down to eligibility of the particular sport. 24 is not too old, but their craft has to be top notch to be considered for an offer. If they have stayed in shape, not violated any NCAA rules, then it is possible to get noticed and recruited by a school.
