They aren't as big of a program so it hasn't gotten as much coverage, but Brian had alluded to USF's oversigning in the past. It seems as though they are using academics as a way to get rid of players from their 29 man class.
Even though the players get through the NCAA clearinghouse and are told everything is ok, they are sent to a review board within USF that ends up denying them.
It's not too big of an issue though because they were given an unconditional release by USF. They've got at least 3 or 4 days until camp begins. I'm guessing this guy lands on his feet.
