PLAYERS: Justin McCay
TEAMS: Oklahoma Sooners
The NCAA has denied an eligibility waiver request for Justin McCay that would have allowed the former Oklahoma wide receiver to play at Kansas this fall. McCay had requested a waiver of the NCAA rule that requires transfer to sit out one year of competition because of what the school termed ''extenuating personal circumstances.'' NCAA staff denied the request Friday, but recommended that McCay appeal directly to the organization's subcommittee for legislative relief, which is comprised of representatives from conferences and universities and has the authority to deviate from NCAA waiver guidelines. Kansas must file its appeal by April 24. The subcommittee would rule by May 1. McCay played in three games for the Sooners because of injuries. He was granted a hardship release and transferred to Kansas to be closer to family in the Kansas City area.
