It seems like no one here knows if he will be eligible. We do know he has

played only 3 seasons at UVA, so normally he would have a 4th year of eligibility, unless this age rule costs him a year. His situation is very unusual since he apparently graduated from an online HS in Miami FL. he got admitted to UVA so I guess an online HS is OK with UVA admissions , but that kind of surprises me.

Of course with home schooling, which I understand includes a lot of online stuff and classes, becoming prevalent for very talented USA junior tennis players and golfers these days, so that they have more time to practice and time to travel to junior tournaments without 'missing' school ,the traditional HS may no longer exist for certain very talented athletes

Our new coach sure could use AR's talents next year. The official tennis roster shows him to be a senior, but I thought that early in the year it showed him as a junior, but I could be wrong about that

Our coaches and AD must know if he has another year of eligibility. If he does not I am a little surprised that nothing official has been said about it.
