Oregon DL Wayne Kirby wants to transfer to BYU?

Post by Fido » Mon Dec 05, 2016 11:28 am

He was a 2016 recruit who chose Oregon over Washington State, BYU and Utah. Now with Helfrich gone, sounds like he wants to come over. He would have to sit out for a year after playing in 9 games for Oregon as a freshman. He is a 3* 6' 3" 315 lb DT out of Pocatello, ID.

Huge get.
If ye love the tranquility of servitude better than the contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Doesn't he still need a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately or will he be sitting out 2017?

He's applying for the waiver. It takes time.

After playing in 9 games, I don't see the "waiver" being granted. We'll see - miracles do happen. Keep hope alive!

The waiver is a hardship request due to his father passing away. They have done them for similar type situations. He has a shot at it.
