The NCAA has denied an eligibility waiver filed on behalf of Kansas wide receiver Justin McCay that would have allowed him to play during the 2012 season.
McCay transferred from Oklahoma at the semester so that he could be closer to family in suburban Kansas City. He filed a waiver request with the NCAA under personal hardship guidelines so that he would not be forced to sit out a season under normal transfer rules.
The initial waiver was declined, and McCay appealed to the NCAA subcommittee for legislative relief, which ruled Wednesday that the former top recruit must sit out the upcoming season.
McCay will be eligible to play for the Jayhawks in 2013 as a junior.
