In February, running back Mike Blakely signed with Florida. Just a few months later in May he was given the go-ahead by Will Muschamp to transfer to Auburn if that was his desire. At Auburn, Blakely appealed to the NCAA to allow him to play immediately — since he had never played in a game for the Gators.
Today, the NCAA denied that appeal according to Blakely’s Twitter account:
“Appeal was denied! No football for me this up coming fall!!!!”
Blakely was one of the nation’s top running back prospects when he inked with Florida. Now it’ll be another year before we see his talents… at Auburn.
