Georgia Transfer Luke Ford Denied Waiver for Immediate Eligibility

Luke Ford, a transfer from Georgia, took to Twitter to announce that his appeal for immediate eligibility at Illinois has been shot down by the NCAA as well.

 

The main reason for Ford, a native of Carterville, Ill., transferring to the Fighting Illini was so that the tight end could be closer to his ailing grandfather; a portion of the NCAA’s denial indicated that a grandparent is not part of the nuclear family as mandated by The Association’s bylaws. Additionally, Ford’s home is nearly twice the distance allowed by the same governing body’s rules.
