Slovakian 1995-born forward Adam Dauda looked to be one of the stronger recruits in Colgate's incoming freshman class this year. But on Wednesday, Colgate head coach Don Vaughan announced that Dauda would be deferring his enrollment for medical reasons. There was some speculation after Dauda was announced by the school as part of the incoming freshman class, but did not appear on Colgate's roster for the upcoming season.
In a press release from the school, Vaughan said:
"We share in Adam’s disappointment that he will be unable to join us for the 2015-16 season. As with any of our student-athletes, Adam’s health comes first. We fully support Adam in his decision and look forward to him being a part of the program as soon as he is able to do so."
The press release also said that Dauda will enroll and attend classes when he has recovered from his injury.
Dauda scored 29-38-67 in 50 games with the Pembroke Lumber Kings of the CCHL last season.
