I don't necessarily disagree with you about the ultimate fate of the article, I wouldn't mind if you PRODed it, and I wouldn't like its chances at a new AfD. The fact remains, though, that the original AfD debate based his deletion on the fact that he was a non-notable collegiate athlete. His status as a professional constitutes a substantial change in circumstance, so the CSD G4 criterion doesn't apply. You might think I'm being a bit of a "process wonk"; I just want to give the article its due time, so that extra eyes can evaluate whether he meets the notability guideline. It may just be that some clever observer finds sources to prove his notability in the meantime. If that doesn't happen, and the article is deleted again, I wouldn't mind in the least.
