Sooner transfer loses appeal to play in 2014 for Houston

Kyle Marrs

Houston’s bid to add additional transfer help along the offensive line has failed.

Head coach Tony Levine confirmed to the Houston Chronicle that the NCAA has denied Kyle Marrs‘ appeal for immediate eligibility. Because of the denial, Marrs will be forced to sit out the 2014 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.

Beginning in 2015, Marrs will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Marrs was a three-star member of Oklahoma’s 2012 recruiting class. After taking a redshirt as a true freshman, Marrs played in 10 games for the Sooners in 2013.

In early June, Marrs was one of two offensive linemen from FBS programs in the state of Oklahoma to join the Cougars. Travis Cross, who transferred in from Oklahoma State, is a graduate transfer and will be eligible to play immediately in 2014.

    Hopefully he’s still there when UH and OU square off in Houston in 2016.
