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.
