LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The NCAA has ruled that Kansas cornerback Kevin Short is academically ineligible and will have to redshirt this season.
Short, a transfer from Fort Scott Community College, started fall camp late after completing his academic work. He was listed as co-starter but was held out of Kansas' season opening win against South Dakota.
Kansas coach Charlie Weis said Friday that he was ``extremely disappointed'' with the NCAA's decision that because Short had a redshirt year available, he should spend it improving his academics.
Weis said Short's junior college transcript gave no indication that Short would not be a successful student, and his grades and transferable hours exceeded entrance requirements. Short, an NJCAA All-American at Fort Scott, will have two years of eligibility remaining after this season.
