Toledo gets a boost as Kentucky transfer granted immediate eligibility
In January, Bryant Koback announced his decision to transfer from Kentucky to the MAC football program. Monday, the Toledo Blade reported that the running back has been granted immediate eligibility after Toledo officials had petitioned the NCAA for a waiver.
Koback sat out the entire 2017 season, his true freshman year, because of a serious leg injury sustained during his final season of high school football.
The redshirt freshman will now have four years to use four seasons of eligibility.
Who is Bryant Koback:
- Originally from Holland, Ohio
- Three-star recruit by 247Sports who was rated the No. 37 running back in 2017
- Participated in Toledo’s spring practice and rushed for 45 yards on six carries
- Expected to get a LOT of playing time with the Rockets this season
Toledo is expected to compete for the MAC West title this season after the poll of MAC media members was released last week…
