A former Michigan running back will have to wait a year before he steps onto the college football field again.

According to a report from NBCSports, ex-Michigan back O’Maury Samuels had his immediate eligibility waiver denied by the NCAA. He decided to transfer to New Mexico State after being dismissed from the Wolverines’ program last December.

Samuels will have two years of eligibility remaining and will be able to make a return to the field in 2020 for the Aggies.

Michigan dismissed Samuels from the team after he was arrested on two charges in December. One of those charges was domestic violence, which was dismissed when he pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of malicious destruction of property under $200.

Samuels was a four-star running back in Michigan’s 2017 recruiting class. In two seasons in Ann Arbor, Samuels totaled 79 yards on 21 carries.
