From what I understand he isn't a martial adept, so he can't recover maneuvers. If he is a martial adept, then it depends on which one. I assume you think he's a Warblade? In that case he can't initiate and recover in the same round.
Yes warblade and it says you can't initiate while you are recovering. It depends on how narrowly you interpret it. You could initiate before you start recovering. Then again it does depend on interpretation.
EDIT: Unless you mean from somewhere else in the book.
