Oklahoma University will submit an appeal to the NCAA on Thursday in another attempt to get transfer quarterback Baker Mayfield eligible for the upcoming season.
Mayfield was the Big 12 offensive freshman of the year last season when he played in eight games as a walk-on for Texas Tech. Despite his success on the field, Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said Mayfield would not be granted a scholarship.
Mayfield decided to transfer to Oklahoma and was given immediate eligibility. But Texas Tech is blocking Mayfield's transfer, which if successful will keep Mayfield on the sideline for the upcoming season.
Mayfield's attorney, Jim Darnell, told the Oklahoman last week, "If they wanted to take care of this kid, they could have done it right." Darnell was Johnny Manziel's attorney last year.
Kingsbury said the transfer is being contested because it is taking place within the conference.
Mayfield is hoping for a decision before the Sooners start their season Aug. 30.
