COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina defensive end Jordin Lindsay had an NCAA eligibility appeal turned down, meaning he won't be able to play this season.
Athletic department Steve Fink said Friday that Lindsey, a senior, would remain on scholarship with the team and would take this as a redshirt season.
Lindsey, a 6-foot-3, 256-pound senior, started 15 of 25 games the last two years. He was the starter for South Carolina's final five games and recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass in the Liberty Bowl against Houston.
Lindsey did not play in South Carolina's season-opening 28-14 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette while awaiting a final decision on his academic status.
Lindsey's twin brother, linebacker Dustin, was placed back on scholarship this season. He had been declared academically ineligible after the 2005 season, reapplied for admission and worked with the scout team last fall.
Freshman defensive lineman Travian Robertson started at defensive end a week ago.
