Georgia State Football 2012: Nermin Delic's Request To Play Denied By NCAA

Nermin Delic's request to play football this year for Georgia State has been denied by the NCAA, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Delic, a transfer student from the University of Kentucky, spent two years with the Wildcats prior to transferring to Georgia State.

Typically when a student-athlete transfers from an FBS (formerly Division I) to an FCS (formerly Division II) school, he is eligible to play immediately. Per Doug Roberson, here's why Delic's request was denied:

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.

Delic will have two years of eligibility after he sits out the 2012 season. Still, he's likely understandably very frustrated at the outcome.
