"One of Indiana’s top football recruits is ineligible, and it’s all Indiana’s fault"

Indiana’s athletic department has spent much of the month of August trying to make things right. Officials filed a waiver request Aug. 3 with the NCAA to restore Fitzgerald’s eligibility; it was denied 11 days later, according to the news release. That same day, the school filed an appeal of that decision; on Friday, the NCAA also denied that appeal.


Indiana would not reveal the root cause of Fitzgerald’s ineligibility, as that information is protected by academic privacy laws
