Nearly a month after transferring from Oklahoma to Kansas, Justin McCay is still uncertain of his status for the 2012 season.
The wide receiver was a four-star member of the Sooners’ 2010 recruiting class, redshirting his true freshman season before playing very sparingly last season. A hardship waiver from the NCAA would allow McCay (pictured, left) to play immediately in 2012, and the paperwork is in the process of being put together.
Until then, the Jayhawks are forced to wait on whether transfer quarterback Dayne Christ will have a transfer receiver to which to throw in the upcoming season.
“Because he has red-shirted for a year, if he were to win a hardship through his letter to the NCAA, that would allow him to have three years to play three,” new KU head coach Charlie Weis said. “He is finishing his letter and sending that in, so we will see how the ruling goes. That is the only status that I can give at this time.”
KU could have an answer on McCay’s status one way or the other prior to the start of spring practice next month.
