TCU isn’t giving up without a fight.
Earlier this month, the NCAA denied an immediate eligibility waiver for Ohio State transfer quarterback Matthew Baldwin. Currently, Baldwin, his family and TCU are fighting that decision and have filed a reconsideration request, according to a report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
If the NCAA chooses to uphold its decision on Baldwin, an appeal can then be filed. It’s a lot of paperwork, but TCU would like the former Buckeye to be eligible by the time the season kicks off at the end of the month.
According to the report, Baldwin and TCU intend to provide more information in the reconsideration request, as well as a potential appeal, if necessary.
Baldwin decided to leave Ohio State following spring ball. He was battling with Georgia transfer Justin Fields for the No. 1 spot before he decided to leave Columbus. Now, he’s hoping to make a run for the starting job with the Horned Frogs.
TCU will open the season on Saturday, Aug. 31 against Arkansas-Pine Bluff
