The NCAA has denied Nermin Delic’s request to play football this season for Georgia State.
Delic, a defensive tackle, transferred to Georgia State this year after spending two years at Kentucky.
Delic, a native of Tunnel Hill, used his redshirt year as a sophomore at Kentucky in 2011. After sitting out this year, he will have two years of playing time at Georgia State.
The NCAA earlier ruled that transfers Theo Agnew and Ronnie Bell could play for the Panthers this year. Agnew, a defensive end, started the first two games. Bell, a quarterback, has yet to see action.
Normally, players that transfer from a FBS school to an FCS school are automatically eligible . Because Georgia State is in the first year of a two-year transition to FBS, the players were deemed to be automatically ineligible until the NCAA’s rulings.
