Will this allow us to sign another guy this year?
Yep. He can stay on scholarship but he comes off the 85.
Will this open a scholarship in 2018 or 2019?
I think it takes a year to make the move.
For example RWIII was still listed on the 2017 roster.

I think it is this year. RWIII was still on the team through Spring Practice. That is the difference.
I fairly sure it depends what year he was place on a medical hardship. Was he place on it in 2017 or 2018, if he was place on a medical hardship in 2017, the scholarship will be available in 2018.
