The NCAA has denied TCU quarterback Matthew Baldwin’s waiver for immediate eligibility, according to sources.
TCU is expected to file an appeal on behalf of the Ohio State transfer this week.
NCAA transfer rules require student-athletes to sit out a season, if they haven’t graduated, unless they can prove “extenuating circumstances” as a reason to obtain waiver.
The NCAA Division I council approved a package of updated guidelines in late June that made it more difficult for players to obtain immediate eligibility waivers. Baldwin’s waiver fell under the updated guidelines, while others such as former Ohio State quarterback Tate Martell received a waiver under less strict guidelines earlier this summer.
